On Sat 27 October 2018, this theological event aims to:
- Honour Christian work for justice for refugees and migrants;
- Raise our eyes beyond crisis responses;
- Seek guidance in the sources of our faith; and
- Ask ourselves what we can do better, what more we can do and what we should do next.
It intends to engage Christian activists and those with curious minds who are committed to justice for refugees and migrants, focusing on European responsibilities and standing up for the rights of those excluded by unjust systems.
