When we have power over our destiny our children will flourish. They will walk in two worlds and their culture will be a gift to their country. Statement from the Heart

ABM’s Mission Grants give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people a say in how funding should be prioritised and directed. The purpose of the grants is to support mission activities that benefit Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Grant applications which meet the funding guidelines are appraised by members of NATSIAC, the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglican Council. Grant recipients (preference is given to Anglican Church organisations, or ecumenical initiatives where there is an Anglican connection) are required to provide complete financial reporting and demonstrate how the purpose of the grant connects with the Anglican Communion’s Marks of Mission.

Last year, grants helped to establish new Aboriginal ministries at Point Pearce in South Australia and at Toronto in New South Wales. Mission Grants assist local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander churches by strengthening ministry and providing the resources for hopes and dreams to be turned into action.

Your support for the mission grants empowers NATSIAC to direct funding to initiatives which best represent the aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglicans.

In 2020 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mission Grants needs $100,000
