The World Refugee Sunday will take place on Sundays 18th and 25th of June 2017 . You can chose to remember refugees and displaced people either on the 18th or 25th, or both if you are willing! Mobilisation actions will be proposed for the whole week.

These are very special occasions for churches to unite in prayer for over 65 million men, women and children forcibly displaced by persecution, violence and war. 

Europe has seen an unprecedented flow of refugees coming since the end of 2015, and we want as Christians to intercede for them and engage in the resolution of this crisis.

For this particular event, the Refugee Highway Partnership and The Refugee Campaign are preparing a Refugee Sunday church pack. The pack will include a prayer guide, sermon outlines, videos and practical suggestions for your church to run a refugee-themed Sunday service.

Be a safe place for those on the run from the killing fields.” Isaiah 16:4
