Walkabout Ministries is the way that the Reverend Gloria Shipp continues to be a pioneer for Aboriginal ministry in the Anglican Church of Australia. The first Aboriginal woman to be ordained a priest in 1996, Gloria has spent her ministry bridging cultures and demonstrating Christ’s love and concern to communities in Dubbo, NSW.
Although COVID-19 has meant Gloria has retired from her role as a Juvenile Justice Chaplain, she continues to run a busy schedule of events which include a Women’s Camp, weekly Elders Group, Reconciliation luncheon, Women of the Bible afternoons, a Christian rally in Dubbo and outreach trips, as well as baptisms, weddings and funerals.
Your support for this project provides a small stipend for Gloria, some administrative assistance, and supplies for the various activities.
