DIOCESE OF BATHURST
The Rev’d Gloria Shipp.
The Rev Gloria Shipp works in the Diocese of Bathurst to support the indigenous community through a variety of ministries such as women’s dinners, camps and support to juvenile justice.
Gloria was the first Aboriginal woman to be ordained a priest in the Anglican Church in Australia. She is currently the Chairperson of NATSIAC (National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglican Council) and many of her hours are spent with administration and organisation of travel to gatherings and meetings for all other members. Her responsibilities as the NATSIAC Chair are an encouragement to all members across the country and by supporting this project you will contribute to the national Aboriginal community.
Gloria’s work of Walkabout Ministries in the Diocese of Bathurst aims to empower people and encourage transformation in lives through fellowships.
She said, “The women’s camps are all about renewing your spirit and that’s what I have had to do as it gets taken away from us in our busy lives.”
Support this non tax-deductible project and assist Gloria to continue to renew the spirit.
