Seek Justice and Reconciliation

People can experience a fuller life while we are on Earth – we don’t have to wait until we die. God longs for justice for all people

Therefore, the Mission Service will speak out against injustice. We fight not simply the effects of injustice but also the systems and structures that enable injustice. Seeking reconciliation is also an essential part of Salvation Army life. Justice and reconciliation are vital activities to achieving ‘Our Vision’ of ‘fullness of life for all with Jesus’.

Refugee Response

There are so many ways corps and centres can support refugees and asylum seekers. Some ideas that are already happening around the territory include:

  • English language classes at no cost
  • Safe spaces to make new friends or to enjoy a meal
  • Engagement through carer and toddler groups
  • Sunday worship
  • Midweek activities such as sports sessions or intergenerational activities
  • Practical assistance through food banks and baby banks
Stepney

Exploring Community Sponsorship

Stepney (in partnership with other local churches), have been one of the latest corps in the territory to welcome a refugee family through the community sponsorship programme.
