Reconciliation Sunday

Each year in the Uniting Church we celebrate Reconciliation Sunday as a part of honouring our covenant with the UAICC (Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress).

This year we will celebrate this service on June 2 as this falls during Reconciliation Week. This important week in the life of Australian society, Reconciliation Week, begins the day after Sorry Day (May 26th) and includes the anniversary of the 1967 referendum (May 27th) and finishes on June 3rd, sometimes known as ‘Mabo Day’, the anniversary of the High Court’s 1992 Mabo judgement which was a major landmark in the recognition of Indigenous land rights in Australia.
