Take action

Your help is urgently needed to support the people impacted by the conflict in Palestine and Israel.

Here are three ways you can respond:

Advocate

Join with KAIROS Canada and member churches and agencies by calling on the Canadian government to respond to the escalating violence in Palestine and Israel by:  

  • calling for an immediate ceasefire and an end to the violence 

  • ensuring humanitarian assistance is provided and a safe corridor for aid is opened

  • ensuring civilians are protected 

  • calling for the safe and immediate return of all hostages and civilians being held in detention without charge

 

Use the online letter writing template on the United Church of Canada website to send an email directly to Foreign Affairs Minister, The Hon. Mélanie Joly, and your local MP.

The United Church of Canada has also signed on to a number of statements from our partners and other organizations calling for a ceasefire to the conflict.

 

Donate

Mission and Service partners are currently responding to those who are impacted by the conflict in West Bank and East Jerusalem. Partners are prepared to expand their activity into Gaza when a humanitarian corridor is opened, allowing for safe access to provide relief. Currently, there is an urgent need for food, as well as non-food items such as medicines, psychosocial support, and shelter. Please donate today!

Pray

Finally, please pray for peace with justice for the people of Palestine and Israel. As people of faith, we bring the grief, compassion, and concerns of a hurting world to God. Additional prayers can be found on the United Church of Canada and the Canadian Council of Churches websites.

New Hymn Addresses the Invasion of Ukraine
Walter Farquharson and Richard Hall have written a hymn, addressing the Ukraine invasion: "I Will Sing To Our God". Walter has written new lyrics for the music, composed in 1985 by Richard. The biblical inspiration is Exodus 15, The Song of Moses & Miriam. The current inspiration is Russia's invasion of Ukraine. As the situation in Ukraine is timely, they are sending the hymn with the invitation to use and copy freely if it is useful. They are not seeking royalties. Please feel free to forward it to anyone who might have use for it.
 
Statement for Peace in Ukraine and Donations Link
The invasion of Ukraine is costing precious lives and creating a humanitarian crisis as people flee to safety. The United Church of Canada has joined with partners who witness and work for peace and justice in the world, by issuing a statement condemning the invasion of Ukraine. You can see the statement and other information here, and find a link here to make a donation to support United Church Mission & Service partners responding to rapidly emerging needs. We add our prayers of concern and support for the people of Ukraine, and for their families and friends here and throughout the world.
