In January 2020, Aunty Jean Phillips, one of the most senior Aboriginal Christian Leaders, is calling all Australian Christians to come together in prayer in the lead up to January 26 through the #ChangeTheHeart prayer services. This is the fifth year these prayer services have been run nationally and they are supported by Common Grace www.commongrace.org.au, a growing movement of over 45,000 Australian Christians passionate about Jesus and Justice. These services are a beautiful opportunity for us to stand with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander sisters and brothers, while learning more about the true history of Australia.
Our local service is on Friday 24 January – 5.30pm at St David’s Anglican Cathedral – 23 Murray Street, Hobart, TAS.
Please come and join in and support Aboriginal Christian Leaders, Common Grace, and pray for our nation.
