ONE OF THE THREE PROJECTS FOR LENT 2017 - ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER MINISTRY

From remote communities to regional towns and big cities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians play an important and too often overlooked role in the church and community. In Numbulwar, on the coast of Eastern Arnhem Land, the Reverend Yulki Nunggumajbarr (pictured) has been able to sit together with members of the Northern Territory Ministry Development Team to develop liturgies in the language of her people for special services such as Easter and Ash Wednesday.

PACIFIC EL NINO EMERGENCY RESPONSE

ABM Appeal for PNG

According to a recent report by the PNG Church Partnership Program (CPP), an estimated 140,000 people in Papua New Guinea are suffering severe food and water shortages as the result of the ongoing El Nino weather system.
The situation is worsening with successive crop failures, malnutrition prevalent amongst children, increased cases of typhoid, diarrhoea and pneumonia, and reports of desperate families exchanging women and girls for food, or abandoning them due to the inability to support them.

World Environment Day

World Environment Day

Every June 5, World Environment Day is commemorated.  The day was established by the United Nations General Assembly 1972.  Its aim is to encourage people to be active in supporting sustainable and equitable living and to become more aware of the role communities play in changing issues.

This year, as the day is falling on a Sunday, we will be remembering our responsibilities to this beautiful world, which we see as the creation of our loving God, for a home for us, and for us to care for and protect, not just for us, but for future generations .
