Syria – Persecution of Christians – SIGN petition / ACTION needed

With continuing persecution of Christians in Syria by Islamic militants,hundreds of thousands of Christians have fled the country. Others are struggling under persecution in Syria.

We often ask ‘What can I do?” As well as praying, here are things you can DO! 

… a petition, and contacting our federal MPs and Senators.

Leaders of the church in Syria are asking for our help. Barnabas Fund, which supports persecuted Christians around the world and is led by Dr Patrick Sookhdeo, has launched a petition seeking immediate help from other nations – specifically recognition of the problems they are facing, for humanitarian help and to “Work towards and support only those outcomes in Syria that allow freedom, equality and justice for all without discrimination, recognising that core human rights including freedom of religion and belief are the only basis for a stable society.”

Click here for MORE information on the Barnabas Fund website about the situation and the petition and to view/print the petition.
To obtain the petition document – click here. Please print and copy it.

Although the petition is open until December 31, it is important that signatures are collected quickly so that prompt action can be generated. Send completed petition forms to

Pray for the Federal Election – Here are some of the current issues that need prayer.

Recent months in federal politics have been tumultuous, sometimes shocking and even bizarre.  The events of the last few weeks highlight the need for those who have signed the Canberra Declaration, with its three focus areas of religious freedom, marriage and family and the sanctity of human life, to pray for the upcoming federal election.

  • 25 June – new legislation is hastily pushed through under the radar nullifying religious exemption for aged-care institutions (see article).
  • 25 June – a Senate Committee dismisses Senator John Madigan’s gender-selective abortion bill without public hearings despite massive public interest and support (see article).
  • 26 June – Kevin Rudd returned as Prime Minister in a leadership spill described as the greatest comeback in Australian political history (see article).
