How do we respond to January 26 this year?
For many First Nations Peoples this is a time of grief.  This is not a political issue, it is a personal one.

  • We invite you to attend the #ChangeTheHeart Service on Monday, 25 January 2021 7:30 pm BUC will gather together to pray, on line and in unison, with one of Australia’s most senior Aboriginal Christian Leaders, Aunty Jean Phillips,  on the evening before January 26.  Watch the video for more information and for details of how to join in https://www.commongrace.org.au/tunein
  • BUC is also holding an Aboriginal Sunday service on 31 January 2021.   We will be listening deeply to and being led by Aboriginal Christian Leaders.
