World Refugee Sunday 2017 - 18th/25th June
Each year, the United Nations holds a World Refugee Day on 20th June. This year, the World Evangelical Alliance, Church Response for Refugees and the European Evangelical Alliance are partnering to deliver World Refugee Sunday on the two Sundays before and after this day.
Join thousands of Christians across the globe on Sunday 18th and Sunday 25th June to pray and intercede for over 65 million men, women and children forcibly displaced by persecution, violence and war.
