Refugees and God

We are in the midst of a global refugee crisis. 

There are more than 25 million refugees worldwide.* Each year millions of men, women and children are forced to leave their homes as a result of conflict, persecution, violence, and human rights violations. The numbers are overwhelming and heartbreaking. And at the same time the debates about immigration reform are nuanced and complex. How do we respond to such a need? And what difference, if any, should faith play?

On this evening we’ll engage with these questions and more. You’ll have a chance to ask questions, or to simply sit and listen to what other people have to say. This event is for everyone - from the skeptically minded to the believer. All welcome.

Panellists include:
The Hon. Craig Laundy MP - Federal Member for Reid 
Amelia Savage - Asylum Seeker Outreach Worker at Anglicare
Refugees sharing their personal stories
