Every day thousands of desperate people take to the road or the sea, seeking safety from harm. Some stay within their home country as displaced people while others often make the dangerous journey to other mostly poorer countries. Turkey, Colombia, Pakistan and Uganda host over 9 million refugees between them.
On World Refugee Day (June 20 each year), we celebrate the contribution refugees make to our world and our responsibility to always welcome the stranger. This year Methodist and Presbyterian churches mark Refugee Sunday on World Refugee Day and the Anglican churches on July 4— these resources have been written for both.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees will announce the 2020 global figures for refugees and displaced people on June 20.
Refugee Sunday worship resources for June 20 for the Methodist and Presbyterian churches and July 4 for Anglican Churches.
PowerPoint Slides to accompany the resources and Operation Refugee.
