Participating in Canberra’s National Sorry Day Walk

On Friday morning, 26 May 2017, Canberra Region Presbytery (CRP) members were amongst those participating in the “largest ever National Sorry Day Walk in Canberra”, with hundreds of people walking across Commonwealth Avenue Bridge to mark Sorry Day. The bridge walk was organised by the Winnunga Nimmityjah Aboriginal Health Service and marks the beginning of National Reconciliation Week.

Above we see Co-Chair of CRP, John Williams, walking with members of Queanbeyan Uniting over the bridge. John says: “It was a wonderful occasion with a good sprinkling of UCA folk.” Below you can see the gathering of the large crowd and the Smoking Ceremony which began the walk.
