Australia: NATSIAC

As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. - Colossians 3: 12-15

NATSIAC’s vision is to be the primary voice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglicans, promoting Gospel mission, encouraging ministry and generating resources so that we may walk together with God and the wider church.

The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglican Council (NATSIAC) is an official body of the Anglican Church of Australia with representatives from across the national church working together on issues that are important to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglicans.

The annual NATSIAC Gathering is an important source of support and encouragement for participants. NATSIAC members come from a diverse range of ministries. They include bishops, priests, deacons and lay ministers working in cities, regional towns and remote communities.

Life Member of NATSIAC, Rev’d Dianne Langham from Newcastle, states that the church is very much a “pot plant” on this land without becoming a part
 of this land. It is 230 years old when, in reality, it can become 60,000 years old.

NATSIAC provides a vital and prophetic voice in the wider church. NATSIAC has requested that ABM raise funds to assist in providing secretariat support for members who are all volunteers with busy local ministries.

Your support of NATSIAC helps Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglicans to support one another and to raise their voice in the wider church.
