The Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand (PCANZ) Moderator Right Rev Hamish Galloway has exhorted church members to “understand our biblical mandate to be informed and care about this (refugee) crisis” in his Refugee Sunday message on 26 June. With millions around the world living in displacement, poverty and vulnerability, the PCANZ Moderator spoke about how he has heard stories of compassionate action taken by churches geographically near Ukraine, and urged them to take concrete action as well. This can be in the form of giving through Christian World Service, or befriending people in their neighbourhoods who have had to flee their homelands, to build understanding, and listening to their stories.
