This coming Sunday (Jan 21st) we are having our church service at the Risdon Brook Dam. Each year on the Sunday before Australia Day, we join with hundreds of other churches around Australia and listen to and be led by our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Christian Leaders to walk together in friendship, to pursue justice, healing, and flourishing for all.
