Walkabout Ministries (The Reverend Gloria Shipp)

Walkabout Ministries is the way that the Reverend Gloria Shipp continues to be a pioneer for Aboriginal ministry in the Anglican Church of Australia.

The first Aboriginal woman to be ordained a Priest in 1996, Gloria has spent her ministry bridging cultures and demonstrating Christ’s love and concern to communities around Dubbo, NSW.

In 2021 Gloria moved from Dubbo to Nyngan (2 hours North-West of Dubbo), where she grew up. She continues to travel to Dubbo for meetings of the Elders Group. Walkabout Ministries is planning to run a Women’s Camp, Reconciliation luncheon and Women of the Bible sessions in 2022. Gloria also continues to conduct baptisms, weddings and funerals.

Your support for this project provides a small stipend for Gloria, some administrative assistance, and supplies for the various activities.

In 2022 we hope to raise for this project:
