Join the Assembly Resourcing Unit (ARU) for a time of conversation and listening, now taking place every month.
Following on from our BYO Coffee invitation during COVID-19, the ARU team will continue to provide opportunities for conversation and to listen to people from across the Church on areas of particular focus.
This month, as part of NAIDOC Week, we invite you to join us for a yarn all about the NAIDOC Week theme: Always Was and Always Will Be with our guest Alison Overeem, Manager Leprena UAICC Tasmania, on THURSDAY 12 NOVEMBER 7.30pm AEDT.
Alison is a proud Palawa woman from South-East Tasmania and is passionate about raising awareness of Aboriginal culture and history. Sheis a member of the national executive of the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (UAICC) and a panel member for our Assembly Walking Together as First and Second Peoples Circle. Among many achievements, Alison has been inducted into the Tasmanian Honour Roll for Women in recognition of her work to design an award-winning, culturally inclusive children’s centre.
In a reflection Alison wrote for NAIDOC Week 2020 she invites all Australians to hear the stories of First Australians and their connection to land.
