When the Australian Government agreed to permanently resettle 12,000 additional Syrian and Iraqi refugees, the Archbishop called on Sydney Anglicans to respond.
This program works with Anglican churches, Sydney Diocesan agencies and the community to co-ordinate work with Syrian and Iraqi refugees and build the capacity of parishes to work with newly arrived Syrian and Iraqi refugees.
How can you be involved
Please see our volunteering opportunities to get involved for programs like Mobile Community Pantry and ESL Classes.
Would you like to help refugees from Syria and Iraq and have a positive impact on the community?
A pilot program of 10 pairs will be conducted for ENRICH Mentoring from October-December. The program enables volunteers to mentor Syrian and Iraqi refugees in employment and friendship through a structured 8 week program. Migrant and Refugee Services are currently recruiting volunteers from across the Diocese. This pilot requires a commitment of one hour per week for 8 weeks and 3 events.
