Racial Justice Sunday is observed by churches in Britain and Ireland on the second Sunday of February. It has been celebrated ecumenically since 1995.
This coming Racial Justice Sunday on the 13th February 2022 is an excellent opportunity for Christians of all denominations to join together in affirming the equality of all people and to make a commitment to becoming actively anti-racist.
We have given our 2021 toolkit an update for this year. Contained in the toolkit are a number of prayers, reflections, and sermon ideas to help Churches and faith groups in Cornwall observe Racial Justice Sunday and consequently take action in their communities. However, these resources can be used at any time of the year.
This toolkit was put together as a collaboration between Churches Together in Cornwall, All Saints Highertown, and Transformation Cornwall with contributions from Marcus Allyene from Black Voices Cornwall and Rev. Patrick Gilbert, BAME Champion for Truro Diocese. We hope that these resources are of blessing to you and your congregations.
