Doing our bit to ease the pain of the refugee crisis

Doing our bit to ease the pain of the refugee crisis

Tuesday the 20th of June is World Refugee Day.  We are living through a period with the highest number of displaced people since the Second World War.  This humanitarian crisis has not gone away, just because it has left the news

As a Diocese, we have been working hard to do our bit – thank you to all who have supported refugees entering New Zealand with donated goods, time invested in setting up homes, neighbourhood support and prayers.  But there is more we can do.  Click below to read more about what you can do to help, and how some in our Diocese have found unique ways to be part of the solution in their own neighbourhood.
