Refugees, Jesus and Justice

June 16 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Join us as we celebrate Refugee Week 2021 and discuss what Jesus and the Bible have to say about justice for refugees in the UK today.

Is justice possible for refugees today? What does Jesus and the Bible have to say about how we welcome refugees in the 21st century?

The world is a difficult place for refugees and asylum seekers in 2021. We are particularly seeing this in the UK right now, as the government plans the biggest overhaul to the UK immigration system in decades. Whilst the Home Secretary’s New Plan for Immigration promises to ‘increase the fairness and efficacy of our system’ many are concerned that harsher measures will mean that many asylum seekers, with no alternative options available to them, will be criminalised.

Join us for an evening of discussion and reflection as we learn more about what the Bible has to say about how we welcome refugees and asylum seekers as Christians in 21st century Britain.

Speakers include: Krish Kandiah, Sir Simon Hughes, Emily Holden, Sue Butler, Joanna Mwansa, Patrick Regan OBE.
