Acknowledgement of Country

Acknowledgement of Country

When our ancestors first came here this was a wild, strange land to them.

But the people of the Wurundjeri-Willam, the white gum tree clan

in the Woi Wurrung language territory of the Kulin Nation, called it home.

They cultivated it with fire to provide food, water, medicine and shelter,

hearing in it the calling of the Creator Spirit.

As Mary heard the angel calling her to bring forth new life for the world,

so let us listen in this land, acknowledging all who have

listened and heard the divine voice here before us. 

Offered for worship on Christmas Eve and Epiphany Sunday.

About the Author:

The worship committee meets monthly to think, talk and pray about the worship that we offer as a community. Worship is at the heart or centre of who we are. It is where we do the thing that makes us distinctive. Unlike just another club, we worship God. It is a time for rediscovering our focus as a community, resting, listening and focussing on God, reorienting ourselves for the week.
