Our General Secretary, the Revd Lynn Green, has issued a statement and encouraged local churches to: 
  • explore afresh the Biblical perspectives within our Gospel tradition that inform our response to the refugee and stranger
  • respond through prayer both to the individual plight of the many thousands of people who continue to seek refuge, and for the political situations which both cause and offer resolution to this crisis
  • offer practical responses working as much as possible in partnership with other concerned citizens both from within our Christian community and beyond
  • contact their MPs to share concerns and inform future debates in Parliament
