Day of Mourning CoverObservance Sunday 19th January 2020

On the Sunday before Australia Day, Uniting Church congregations across the country hold worship services to reflect upon and lament the effect of, the invasion and colonisation of this nation upon her First Peoples.

The observance of a “Day of Mourning” was endorsed by the 15th Assembly at the request of members of the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (UAICC).

Introduction

At Crystal Creek, just north of Townsville, Queensland in 1982 a national gathering of First Peoples and Maori leaders from Aotearoa NZ came together. A vision was birthed for a ‘black congress’ within the Uniting Church in Australia (UCA).

The following year in 1983 another national gathering took place at Galiwin’ku on Elcho Island, in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory to plan the work required for the vision to live. By 1985 the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (UAICC) was recognised by the UCA’s National Assembly at its triennial meeting.
