What is World Relief Sunday?
World Relief Sunday is a Sunday (or series of Sundays) – you can choose the date – when World Relief Canada provides you with promotional posters, bulletin inserts and a video that you can use to engage your people and educate them on how you as a church are making a difference around the world. Together we are helping people work their way out of abject poverty and acute hunger.
We also provide you with sermon notes, fact sheets, conversation starters, etc. for small groups and Sunday School classes.
World Relief Sunday is where our partnership truly begins, but not where it has to end. We become an on-going resource for you; providing updates, information and even speakers to come and share when you need them.
World Relief Canada’s Mission is to respond to the relief and development needs of the world’s poor in the name of Jesus Christ, through our global network of Christian organizations, in partnership with Canadian and overseas Churches.
World Relief Canada’s Vision is to see people responding, with compassion and justice, to the needs of the poor, oppressed and suffering in ways that bring healing and transformation in the world’s poorest communities.
World Relief Canada's Core Values are the essential cornerstones upon which we do our work and are reflected in the following six areas.
- Economic Justice
- Empowerment and Equity
- Environmental Integrity
- Mutual Independence
- Financial Accountability
