We are committed to Reconciliation and the reconciliation process. We acknowledge and respect the traditional custodians of the land on which we worship. We recognise the spiritual and cutural gifts that indigenous people have to offer. We seek to listen and learn in order to be better equipped in a ministry which embraces Respect, Responsibility and Opportunity.
Mentored by Reconciliation Australia, we are committed to developing and implementing a Reconciliation Action Plan. More details will follow soon.
