Change The Story

…it’s a story that says we’re not all human.

You see, the stories we hear and the stories we choose to tell are important. They shape our thoughts, form our opinions and influence our beliefs and values.

The headlines in our media seem to shout that the UK cannot accept any more refugees - That more refugees would be a drain and that we can’t afford (economically or politically) to welcome more people. It gets repeated loudly and without question.

Inevitably this is the story that threatens to become the reality. But we know it’s not the whole story…

Today, more than 65 million people are displaced globally, forced from their homes by violence, fear, desperation and poverty. We believe that each and every one of these people has been made in God’s image and is deserving of safety, freedom and hope.

So we’re going to tell a different story. It’s a story that celebrates the unity of humanity and reminds us of our common ground.

Do you want to be part of a United Kingdom that refuses to turn a blind eye to the suffering of people seeking sanctuary – A country which recognises the inherent worth and dignity of everyone?

Then help us change the story.
