Sydney Refugee Team –
working together towards a common vision

As Sydney Refugee Team join WEC Australia, we feel it is important to renew our Vision and Values to create common vision that our new team owns and agrees with. This gives us clarity in who we are and what we do as we move forward into the future.

Over the past few weeks we have been team-building and brain-storming together as we agreed on the following Vision and Values.


Sharing the hope of Jesus with people seeking asylum and refuge



Relationship is central to all that we do. We seek to build genuine relationships within our team, with people of refugee background, and with God.


As Jesus shows compassion, we are compelled to alleviate suffering and help meet the needs of people of refugee background through the enabling of the Holy Spirit


We endeavour to walk alongside people of refugee background in order to equip and encourage them to become confident participants in the Australian community


We believe in the God of the Bible, that all people are created in His image, and our greatest need is to be in relationship with Him. This faith compels us. We respect people from all faith backgrounds and seek to share God’s love with them.

We will continue to work together over the coming weeks to renew our mission statement and strategy.
