LCA congregations which support overseas organisations are now responsible for ensuring their donations get to the right places and in the right way.
South Sudan, Burundi and Somalia are some of the toughest and most dangerous places on earth for an aid agency to work. Yet, through ALWS, our Australian and New Zealand Lutheran family is there.
On Saturday evening on 24 August, around 400 people raised the roof at Concordia College chapel as they joined in singing some of Robin Mann’s best songs from the last 50 years.
More than 270 Lutherans and friends have walked or run up to 26km in the inaugural Sunshine Coast Walk My Way in Queensland to help support almost 2200 refugee children to go to school.

Most Walk My Way participants found treading one course in the ALWS community event enough of a challenge. But Pastor Peter Hage now has three 25km treks under his soles – and is eyeing off a fourth.
On 13 April more than 400 Lutherans and their friends, who ‘walked my way’ in Adelaide, Darwin and Melbourne, made it possible for 5600 refugee children to go to school.
Twenty-three LCA pastors, including three bishops, are among more than 280 people who will walk up to 26km in an Australia-wide effort to support refugee chlidren to go to school.
