Safe Harbour Art Installation

- Community Announcement -

This Thursday, March 21st, is Harmony Day, and Pilgrim Uniting Church is hosting a pop up art installation in collaboration with Safe Harbour Australia and Justice4RefugeesSA. The installation will be on the forecourt of Pilgrim Uniting Church, 12 Flinders St, Adelaide and along Splash Lane adjacent to the western side of the church.

The art installation is comprised of hundreds of balsa wood boats painting by people in the community - old and young alike. Julian Burnside has also contributed a boat. The boats bring to mind the treacherous journey many refugees have made in order to reach safe shores where they can find safety and protection. The art installation is a testament to the courage of refugees and asylum seekers all over the world, who face the terrors of the sea rather than risk returning to their homeland where all joy has been stolen from them by violence, persecution, war and deprivation.

The pop up art installation will be a contribution to Harmony Day, with a plea that we learn the way of peace, and live it together, so the horrors of violence may cease. We encourage people to stop by for a chat, paint a boat to add to the collection, show support for a tolerant, inclusive, multicultural society and celebrate the contribution refugees and asylum seekers have made to enrich the fabric of Australian society.

Lent Event 2019: Building Hope, Ending Poverty

- Community Announcement -

The Lent Event 2019 theme is “Courage in a Fearful World”.

The Lent Event aims to encourage people to live simply, with a call to give up something from daily life in solidarity with people who have less, while donating or fundraising to support projects that build hope and end poverty.

This year the focus is on Australia’s near neighbour Timor Leste, the poorest nation in South East Asia, where malnutrition and death from diseases like tuberculosis is very high and violence against children is common, because families have grown up with abuse as part of everyday life, a legacy of the conflict that is our history.

The tiny Protestant Church of Timor Leste (IPTL) a long term Uniting Church partner, is only 2% of the population yet punches well above its weight. The church trains leaders and Sunday School teachers, educates communities in health care and runs schools. Their vision is nothing less than the transformation of their country, built on faith, forgiveness and courage.
