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 they may walk together with God and the wider church.
The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglican Council 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.
NATSIAC members are immersed in Indigenous ministry. From their own experience and accumulated wisdom, they guide the wider church on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander matters.
Members have expressed their concern for the serious Gap in Indigenous health outcomes, and the struggle by many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to overcome poverty, including access to decent housing and sanitation. They consider rates of domestic violence, incarceration and deaths in custody to be unacceptable. NATSIAC are also calling attention to the impact of climate change in the Torres Strait Islands.
NATSIAC provides a vital and prophetic voice in the church. Your support of NATSIAC helps Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglicans to support one another and raise their voice in the wider church.
