Churches Partnering with Refugees
How does a congregation live out a call to walk with refugees as they work through the process of making Hamilton home? As our congregations have wrestled with this question two things have become clear:
– The calling looks different for each congregation depending on the area of the city we are in, the ways we live out church, and the refugees with whom God has brought us into relationship
– There is much to be learned from each other as we live out our specific callings
In partnership with Micah House we have started a Refugee Ministry Cooperative that provides consultation and facilitates the sharing of resources and information so that each of our congregations can clarify our calling and learn to live it out more fully.
Each year TrueCity churches work together to facilitate Hamilton’s Ride for Refuge, a bike-a-thon fundraiser for charities who serve the displaced across Canada. Read more about this year’s Ride here: http://truecityhamilton.ca/ride-for-refuge/
