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.

Your support will be used to assist with the establishment and growth of ministry by and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Anglican Church of Australia.

This project is non-tax deductible.

ABM has been supporting its partner, Zambia Anglican Council, to improve gender equality outcomes across many parts of Zambia since 2011. The Church’s Gender and Governance Program addresses gender inequalities and Gender Based Violence, including advocacy about women’s rights with government, within the Church itself and with the broader community. The program has sought to confront cultural traditions, which deny women equal rights and change attitudes about girls being “sold” into early marriage upon the girl getting pregnant. It also aims to equip communities and parishes to learn about and develop skills to deal with Gender Based Violence at the local level.

Please support this project and help ABM change attitudes and behaviours about gender in Zambia.

This project is tax deductible.

The Episcopal Church in the Philippines proclaims the good news of salvation through preaching, liturgical celebrations and action. The support program of the Church, a new integrated program, aims to grow the Church and strengthen its activities on social transformation. The shortage of clergy or ordained ministers has been a reoccurring issue, so the new program will help empower lay people. A Lay Pastors’ Course will enable students to help the clergy maintain existing liturgical services throughout all congregations on Sundays.

Please support this project and help build vibrant congregations through training and development.

This project is non-tax deductible.
