Refugee Week (Sunday June 16 РSaturday June 22) is an opportunity to celebrate the contribution refugees make to our society while also raising awareness about often perilous journey that refugees have taken to reach Australia.  It is also a time to remember those still trapped in the Manus Island and Nauru detention centres for almost six years, with little prospect of freedom
Holy Covenant Anglican Church will be hosting an ecumenical Refugee Week Service with a light supper afterwards.¬†Speakers at the service will be Rev’d Peter Malone from St Paul’s Anglican Church, Manuka, and Megan Watts from Tuggeranong Uniting Church.

Come along for a time of encouragement as we share stories of hope and fresh starts together.
