Reconciliation is central to mission. In an Australian context, reconciliation requires historical acceptance and a willingness to listen to the voices and aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It is a task for the whole of the Church.
ABM has developed a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) which guides the seriousness we place on a flourishing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander presence in the Australian Church.
Funds donated to the Reconciliation Project help ABM to resource and inspire the Anglican Church of Australia in the journey of Reconciliation. This includes compiling liturgical resources written by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglicans; publishing national resources to help Anglicans understand the issues involved with Constitutional Recognition and calls for a treaty; and supporting the ministry and voice of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglicans.
