In 1938, Aboriginal Christian Leader William Cooper asked the Australian Church to set aside the Sunday before January 26th as Aboriginal Sunday, a day of Christian solidarity calling for full citizenship rights to be granted to Aboriginal peoples.
80 years later, we are formalising our desire to see individual congregations reclaim William Cooper’s Aboriginal Sunday by asking your church to set aside 15 minutes in your service on Sunday January 20th.
We will provide your church with resources for a 15 minute segment in your service. These resources will be different to the National Prayer Services so please still remember to join us ecumenically at the Prayer Services.
If you would like to get your church involved, please sign up on this page so we can send you the resources.
