summer study series
"I was a stranger and you welcomed me."
(Matthew 25. 35)
Join us for our summer study series. We explore the theology and scripture behind the Churches of Sanctuary initiative.
Now more than ever, communities are faith are called to consider, discern, and address the plight of asylum seekers and refugees.
This short four-week course helps us to do that but takes us further in our personal journey too. We reconsider our faith in light of a God who came to us as a refugee and called us to serve the alien, the orphan, and the widow.
When: starts Tuesday 29th June, 8–9 pm
How to book: Contact Rev Andrew Robinson at 089 245 4162 (by text or phone) or email to book your place
Recently some of our community undertook the challenge of running the virtual Cork Marathon under the banner of 'Sanctuary Runners'.
We ran to raise awareness for asylum seekers, refugees and those in Direct Provision centres.
Our run was the first tentative step as our community begins the process of becoming a Church of Sanctuary—a faith community exploring ways of being more welcoming working alongside refugees and asylum seekers.
