“In 1967 we were counted, in 2017 we seek to be heard” – Uluru Statement from the Heart
ABM’s Reconciliation Coordinator Celia Kemp says, “If the Australian Church wants to know what really happened in Australia’s past, what is really happening now and where God is speaking into the Australian church – we need to listen to the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.”
Your support for this project enables ABM to create resources and events which help the Anglican Church and the wider community to hear the voices of First Nations People. This includes resources for National Reconciliation Week and support for liturgies developed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
This project also supports the next generation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership in the Anglican Church through events like the 2017 National Aboriginal Bishop’s retreat in Alice Springs.
