    Ni Sa Bula Vinaka, Welcome to Leigh Fijian

    A Congregation of Parramatta Mission

    WORSHIP DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC (March 2020)

    SUSPENSION OF WORSHIP SERVICES/ GATHERINGS
    The Synod (NSW/ACT) of the Uniting Church in Australia issued a landmark recommendation on Wednesday 18 March regarding the cessation of all gatherings, including worship services, due to the spread of COVID-19. The congregations of Parramatta Mission are complying with this recommendation in the interests of public health and safety – and due to our strong investment as a denomination in upholding the “common good.”

    Fijian Ceremonial Acknowledgement to Traditional Owners

    The visitors from across the wasa bula-Oceania
    entered, sat down, cupped their hands and clapped.
    Eyes lowered, they presented their gifts.
    the Great Chief stirred –
    Finger raised, eyes narrowed and spoke:

    “If you come into our land
    And tell a lie
    You do not respect us.”

    To the Burramattagal people of the Darug nation
    tradition owners of this land,
    To those who loved and cared for this land
    from time immemorial, the Indigenous peoples,
    We honour your traditional ownership of this land,
    the land on which we live today, and we offer you our respect.
