Conversation | Joyce Tangi | 14th July 2020

“We are the Elders of tomorrow, hear our voice.”

The 4th August, each year recognises as the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s day. A Resource for Churches to Acknowledge National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day This resource has been designed for use in worship on Sunday 2nd August, 2020. We hope it encourages and enables congregations and faith communities to acknowledge National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day.

This resource has been developed by Tarlee Leondaris (Covenanting Officer) and Melissa Neumann (Intergenerational Discipleship) from the Mission Resourcing team, Uniting Church in Australia, Synod of South Australia in partnership with Chris Barnett (Intergenerational Ministry – Children & Families), Synod of Victoria and Tasmania.

This is an awsome resource!! It includes a Welcome to worship, Acknowledgement of Country, Prayer for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and Links to resources, as well as including an activity pack to share with an Aboriginal community or UAICC community that you have connection with.

Please send and link to all communities that have children and young people that they may know, listen, hear stories and engage. As we continue to value our covenanting and walking along side with our 1st peoples.
