Sunday January 28th is World Leprosy Day. Around Australia, and the world, people like you are taking the opportunity to raise their voices on behalf of those affected by leprosy.

Our theme this year is Fasting to Restore God’s Creation.

Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:

to loose the chains of injustice

and untie the cords of the yoke,

to set the oppressed free

and break every yoke?”

- Isaiah 58:6 8 

As an organisation that seeks to follow Jesus in all that we do, churches play an essential role in helping achieve our goal of making leprosy a thing of the past. Partnering with us will set free the lives of women, men, and children and help end leprosy.

By holding a World Leprosy Sunday service anytime in 2024, you will be joining in the work of restoring God’s creation. You might wish to dedicate your whole service, the sermon, a mission spot, or a special Cuppa for a Cure morning tea to focus on supporting people with leprosy.

We have all the resources you need to make this a special time in your community.

Available resources include:

  • Sermon notes and PowerPoint
  • Mission spot notes and PowerPoint
  • Sunday School lesson
  • Cuppa for a Cure
  • Speakers (subject to availability)
  • Bible Studies and more!

All resources can be downloaded here (World Leprosy Sunday 2023 Resources - Leprosy Mission Australia)
