My name is the Revd Catherine Graham and I am a Chaplain at St John’s Cathedral in Hong Kong. The Anglican Refugee & Migrant Network (ARMN) is hosted by the Anglican province of Hong Kong on behalf of the Anglican Communion.
ARMN is working on behalf of the Anglican Communion to create an active network that shares information and experiences between organisations and individuals who work on the front-line with refugees and migrants.
Across the Anglican Communion our church communities are ministering among local refugee and migrant people. The network is working to support this as well as to encourage new projects.
ARMN also works with the wider ecumenical family and other faiths to support refugee and migrant people across the world.
As well as providing information and support to front-line workers the network aims, through advocacy, to tackle the root causes of the displacement of people.
Finally, we are working to develop and share information and reflection from a Christian point of view relating to refugees and migrants.
ARMN is currently conducting a global mapping of the work being done with refugee and migrant people by Anglican churches throughout the 38 Provinces of the Anglican Communion. By understanding the global situation more thoroughly, we hope to develop a strategy with our members to achieve the network’s objectives.
If you are involved in work with refugee and migrant people we would be grateful to receive any information you may have on any of, but not limited to, the following areas:
