HISTORY OF OUR CHURCH

This gathering of several Aboriginal Aunts in Minto began around 2000 as a result of experiencing racism from other mainstream churches. For a couple of years the Sunday Services were taken by a roster of indigenous pastors coming over on Sundays from different churches to minister to them.

They then approached the Sydney Anglican Indigenous People’s Committee and obtained funding for a full time pastor in 2003.

The Church has met in various locations but since entering a partnership with St Peter’s Anglican Church in late 2011, we have been using St Peter’s Church in Campbelltown for our Sunday service and other church activities.

As our church has a heart for training Aboriginal people for leadership and ministry we have been providing traineeships for Aboriginal people since 2010 equipping young leaders for the future.

Our approach includes:

  • Reading & studying Gods word
  • Praying together
  • Being accountable
  • Being committed
  • Being faithful

Since 2000 our Church has had the privilege to faithfully minister to the people of the Macarthur Aboriginal community. This is a much needed ministry because:

  • NSW has the highest population of Aboriginal people within Australia (148,200);
  • Sydney has the largest urban population of Aboriginal people (41,800);
  • Macarthur Region has the 2nd highest population of Aboriginal people in NSW (approx. 10,000 people).
  • All need to hear the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ

Every Sunday morning from 10am in the Church building at the top end of Mawson Park – all welcome!
