Peace theme for Refugee Sunday

REFUGEES and migrants who have made their homes in Coffs Harbour will tell their stories in dance and song as well as with the spoken word tomorrow afternoon.

Coffs Harbour Council of Churches is holding a special afternoon tea and service at St John's Anglican Church to celebrate Refugee and Migrant Sunday and everyone is invited to attend.

The celebration will begin at 3.30pm with afternoon tea, which will be followed by a service at 4pm.

Rev Jan McLeod said in co-operation with Anglicare Migrant Services, the service would involve many of the newly-arrived families in the area who would talk, sing and dance stories of their journey to this country and this area.

The theme of the services, which are being held around Australia, is Peace and Protection and the services will also help to raise awareness of genocide around the world.
