Indigenous Ministry

In the Alice Springs Baptist Church, we are blessed to have people in our congregation from many backgrounds and cultures. Very important to the life of our church are the indigenous people who are a part of our congregation.

We praise God for the unity that Christ gives us no matter where we are from, and an important ministry of our church is to grow the unity, and functions of the body of Christ here.

Some of the ways that we seek to do that in our congregation is by having regular bush tucker outings, where the indigenous people in our church take a group of people from our church out bush for a day to gather bush tucker, and share food together. These are always wonderful opportunities to grow our relationships together and encourage one another as well as learn new things.

We acknowledge the Christian examples the Warlpiri people in our congregation are to their family and community, and seek to be an encouragement to them with the important witnessing opportunities they have.
