Our Commitment

As Christians we are called to love our neighbour, welcome the stranger, challenge unjust systems and offer refuge and care to those who are marginalised and in exile, we have a particular responsibility in our society when it comes to responding to issues related to asylum seekers and refugees.

Refugee Week 2018

Shelter from the Storm is the Uniting Church in Australia’s statement on asylum seeker and refugee policy. It was adopted by the 14th Assembly in July 2015.

Together, as members of the body of Christ, may we seek a just society that upholds the dignity of every person where all can have hope for a decent peace-filled life for themselves and their families. [1]
