2022 Walk for Justice & Freedom for Refugees

Music from 1.30pm, Speakers at 2pm
 
End Detention, Permanent Visas, Safe and Secure Futures
 
At Uniting we face injustice head on. We stand up for what is right and true with confidence and strength. We believe the world is made a better place through action. Support the Palm Sunday Walk for Justice and Freedom for Refugees, and stand up for justice, decency and compassion.
 
Please share the Facebook event
 
Australia’s treatment of refugees continues to be cruel and unjust.
According to the Refugee Advocacy Network:  
  • Around 30,000 people have been on Bridging visas for many years in the community, with uncertain futures, and a significant number of these people, including families face destitution. The government has withdrawn income and housing support for most of these vulnerable people, who have difficulty getting full time employment, having been denied the right to work for many years. Our Government is still not offering permanent protection to the children and their families being brought here from Nauru in 2018– so their uncertainty continues.
  • Hundreds of people remain in detention across Australia, including the 18 Medevac refugees still held in the Park Hotel in Carlton
  • Thousands of people are stuck on limbo on Temporary visas and SHEV visas – even though they are refugees and should have been permanently resettled here years ago. Children of refugees have grown up here, but still do not have a secure future.

Gifford Arts Exhibition

Baring your soul in Gallery 1 celebrates the relationship between members of the Gifford Arts Group and how their art positively impacts the wider community of neighbours, family and friends in Maroondah. Gifford Arts is an inclusive arts program that has been running for over 10 years in Croydon North, supported by Uniting.

Paradise Lost in Gallery 2 by Alexander Pinkster features a new series of works by the artist that explore the changing face of our urban environment and the impact this has on people’s connections to each other and the natural world.

The Gifford Arts Group has been supported by the Cultural Facilities Hire Subsidy Program as part of Maroondah City Council’s COVID Recovery Plan, and Alexander Pinkster was awarded the Maroondah Federation Estate Gallery Local Artist Initiative.

We look forward to seeing you at the Maroondah Federation Estate Gallery, we have COVID safe procedures in place for when you visit us.

Celebrating our long association with the Wesley Church

You are invited to attend a service celebrating Uniting’s role as the community services organisation of the Uniting Church in Australia Synod of Victoria and Tasmania.  

The service is being held between 22 June, the anniversary of the formation of the Uniting Church in 1977 when it produced its Statement to the Nation, and 1 July,  the date that Uniting Vic.Tas came into being in 2017, merging more than 20 community services agencies connected to the Church.  

Uniting’s Director of Mission, Rev John Clarke, will preach at the service.  It will also be an opportunity to recommit to the Covenant between the Wesley Church Melbourne and Uniting.  

The recommitment to the Covenant is timely, as some Uniting services move into the Wesley Place complex, which is next to the Wesley Church.  

Wesley Mission Victoria was one of the founding agencies of Uniting. It was started by the Wesley Church in 1893, to provide services for poor and vulnerable people and to advocate on their behalf.  More than 100 years later, everyone connected to Uniting remains inspired by the belief that we can build a more just, connected and inclusive society.   

Refreshments will be served afterwards.

With current restrictions in Victoria, it is vital to register your attendance using the button above.
