Acknowledgement of Country
We acknowledge that the site of this church is placed adjacent to Tarndanyangga (Victoria Square), which is the site of ceremony and ritual of the Kaurna people, the traditional custodians of the Adelaide Plains and we pay respect to their elders past and present.
We are awed that they celebrated the religious significance of place, plant and all living creatures; and that care for the earth was implanted in their law.
We honour them and also delight in the sacred in our midst recognising that cultural and heritage beliefs are still important to Kaurna people today.
And so we pray that in the power of the Holy Spirit we might work together for reconciliation and justice in this land.
- the language of the people of the Adelaide Plains
Ngadlu tampinthi yalaka ngadlu Kaurna yartangka inparrinthi. Ngadludlu tampinthi, parnaku tuwila yartangka.Translation: We acknowledge this land that we meet on today is the traditional lands for the Kaurna people and that we respect their spiritual relationship with their country.
