You are invited to join a conversation hosted by TEAR Australia, between Adelaide West Uniting Church and the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Congress Church.  Together we will be talking about how one local church has gone on a journey towards reconciliation.

From large car park murals to campfire sing-a-longs, members and leaders of Adelaide West Uniting Church (AWUC) have sought to inform themselves and make connections with local Indigenous leaders and Christians.  

In this webinar, Ruth Harbinson-Gresham (AWUC Church Council), Mark Kickett (State Development and Outreach Coordinator with Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Congress Church) and Esmond (a retired Uniting Church minister) will talk through some of the initiatives that they have been involved in over the last five years and reflect on what has worked and what has not as they have journeyed toward reconciliation.   

This conversation will inspire you and give you practical examples of how you can start, or go deeper, in your journey of reconciliation.  It is suitable for Church leaders and congregation members alike and will meet you wherever you are on the path.
