In this time of uncertainty and increased anxiety the The National Council of Churches in Australia has joined together with organisations of many other faiths to share a united voice.  

JOINT STATEMENT OF AUSTRALIAN FAITH COMMUNITY REPRESENTATIVES: 

AUSTRALIA’S RESPONSE TO THE COVID19 PANDEMIC SO FAR, LOOKING AHEAD NOW.

"Compassion is at the heart of our faiths. It is our unifying ethic....

We cannot think of our circumstances without compassion for those so vulnerable in places where there continue to be wave after wave of COVID19 deaths.

Many of us have links with these places through our faith, family and friends."  say the Multifaith leaders.

 The statement declares:

"Our bruised and wounded world needs the example of a multifaith place where compassionate, humble service is the national practice. 

We think our Australia can be that place, which gives hope to others."
