As individuals and as a congregation we have taken part in campaigns  and action relating to the marginalised and vulnerable (e.g. drug law reform, support for refugees, creation of the MyHome in Canberra residential facility) and society-wide issues eg the need for action to address climate change - and we will continue to do so.
