National Reconciliation Week 2022

27 May – 3 June 2021

Be Brave. Make Change.

The National Reconciliation Week 2022 theme, “Be Brave. Make Change.” is a challenge to all Australians— individuals, families, communities, organisations and government—to Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can Make Change for the benefit of all Australians.

Reconciliation Australia

 #BeBraveMakeChange #NRW2022 

Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organisations and importantly as a nation. At the heart of this journey are relationships between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is celebrated across Australia each year between 27 May and 3 June. The dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey-the anniversaries of the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision.

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITIES

Common Grace 

The Common Grace movement will be exploring Reconciliation as Love in Action across our social media and through their Church Resources Toolkit. Reconciliation as Love in Action 

You are invited to put your love into action this National Reconciliation Week, 27 May - 3 June 2022. 

Jesus calls us, empowers us, and actually commands us to love one another (John 13:34-35). Love, like Reconciliation, must involve taking action. 

Developed by Aboriginal Christian Leaders, the National Reconciliation Week Church Resources Toolkit will equip your church or faith community to acknowledge and hear from Aboriginal peoples in your church service, and empower your church community to listen, learn, and love in action. The toolkit will include materials for worship, prayer, Bible readings, Acknowledgement of Country, action steps, and a video message.
