We have partnered with the “Immigrants are Blessing, Not a Burden” campaign to offer worship materials for congregations who wish to highlight immigrants and refugees during their All Nations Heritage Sunday.
World Renew believes that educating church communities about Christ’s call to respond to the needs of people who suffer from poverty, hunger, and disaster can transform perspectives and be the catalyst for change — here in North America and around the world.
Here are a few of the ministries available to help you in your pursuit of justice.
This post offers a link to four articles by Canadian writers on the upcoming synod of the CRCNA. The post also includes a conversation between Rev. Paul VanderKlay and Rev. Andrew Beunk.
The Loving Your Neighbor Conference (July 30 - August 1) brings together national and regional speakers to discuss the topic of ministry among migrants, immigrants, and refugees.
In 2016, Synod repudiated the Doctrine of Discovery and the concept of ‘terra nullius’ as heresies.

An estimated 20 million people are living on the brink of starvation in South Sudan, Yemen, Somalia, and Nigeria. At the same time, violence and civil wars across the globe have led to the largest numbers of refugees in recent history. Now is the time for us to act.
Welcoming refugee claimants at Canada’s borders is a faithful response to our Christian calling to love our neighbours from all around the world. Cut through the political spin and learn the facts about refugees and immigrants in Canada.
Join us in a reflective art-making practice. We will learn together about forming community across social and ethnic boundaries, while practicing the art of kintsugi.

As the debate (fight) about immigration and refugee policy descends, it is important to step back, consider how complicated the political questions are, and decline partisan political activism.
Responsible political advocacy must do more than offer only one side of a multi-sided issues, both as to facts and arguments. Being "one-sided" cannot and will not result in justice for all, but rather intractable division.
