Simple Love - For Asylum Seekers
Each Christmas, St. Luke's participates in Simple Love, a movement of churches gathering essential supplies for those seeking asylum or unable to work. We believe that God has a great love for all people and it's our responsibility to show compassion and restore dignity and peace to those seeking asylum. (And after all, Mary and Joseph themselves had to seek asylum in a stable that very first Christmas!)
WHAT - Please only provide items on the list below. All donations will go via 'Simple Love' to the independent Asylum Seeker Resource Centre or House of Welcome or Jesuit Refugee Service to real people in need.
WHEN - Bring donations to our Sunday gatherings in the lead up to Christmas. At other times, please call our office on 9665-8320 to confirm someone will be able to receive your donation.
WHERE - The drop off point is the back corner of the church building, found on the Corner of Arden St & Varna St, Clovelly.
It's simple love, but it makes a huge difference to real people.
