Uniting World at Parliament House

Unitingworld’s Marcus Campbell writes:

This week I’ve been at Parliament House in Canberra, joining more than 200 Christians from across Australia to call on our leaders to do more for the world’s poorest.

The event was organised by Micah Australia, a coalition of churches and faith-based organisations working together to advocate for a more just world.
