Sign up for Refugee Sunday 2021 resources
Sunday 20th June 2021 is World Refugee Day, Refugee Sunday and Father’s Day. It is a day when we can show compassion and solidarity to the thousands of refugees in our country. It is also a day when we remember and give thanks for our own Fathers, and for Christians, reflect on the love of our Heavenly Father.
Asghar arrived in the UK as an asylum seeker with no choice but to leave his wife and children behind in his home country. They were together one day and separated the next. Asghar will not get to spend Father’s Day with his children. He doesn’t know when they will get the chance to be together again. Life in the UK is incredibly difficult for Asghar, but by meeting his local church family, he has experienced their love and support, and knows his Heavenly Father’s love in his life too.
This year for Refugee Sunday we invite you to sign up to share Asghar’s story with your church. Hear how the local church has been a part of his story and how Welcome Churches are supporting refugees and asylum seekers across the UK, like Asghar, with local churches.
Sign up to receive a video and resources to share with your church on Refugee Sunday and help more refugee fathers to be Together One Day.
