#ChangeTheHeart prayer service

Australia Day is fast approaching. We stand with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander brothers and sisters in acknowledging the true history of our nation. Our Indigenous Communities continue to suffer many disadvantages and injustices today. Let us pray together for a nation built on truth, justice, love and hope.

We encourage you to gather together to listen and learn and pray for our nation. Join Aunty Jean Phillips, one of Australia’s most senior Aboriginal Christian Leaders, to gather in prayer to #ChangeTheHeart of the nation. The prayer service will take place on Monday 25th January at 7:30pm (AEDT).

This national service, led by Aboriginal Christian Leaders, will be simulcast on television, online, and on radio. 

As we dream of Reconciliation in our lifetime we know change comes through prayer, through deep friendship and through faithful commitment so we invite you to answer the call of Aunty Jean Philips, to stand in solidarity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and to commit to tuning in together the night before January 26th.
