This is one of the most practical ways to support
asylum-seekers living in Sydney.
All Saints is partnering with the team at Simple Love to support asylum-seekers… and we’re inviting you to join us!
By providing some basic (packaged) grocery and travel items, we can make a huge difference in the lives of asylum-seekers living in our city.
How does it work?
1) download these instructions * Simple_Love_Instructions *
2) you don’t have to buy everything! But…
3) please only buy items on this list
4) drop off your items to All Saints at the following times:
Drop off times

What is Simple Love?
Simple Love is a small organisation of ordinary Christians trying to help asylum seekers living in Sydney.
In 2013, two churches began collecting everyday items for clients at the Asylum Seekers Centre in Newtown. By inviting their local communities to participate, the combined outpouring of generosity was astounding.
Today 70+ churches – working with their local communities – are helping to provide essential aid to thousands of asylum seekers and refugees. Click here for more info about Simple Love.
Why is All Saints partnering with Simple Love?
As a church, we look for ways to impact the world with God’s love. We do this gladly and in response to the way God has loved us.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
The people receiving these gifts will never know our names. And we’re fine with that! They’ll know something better… they will know that people in Australia were willing to support them in their time of need.
