The Home of Parkes Anglicans!
Reverend Gloria Shipp
We would like to extend a huge welcome to Reverend Gloria Schipp who will be speaking at our 7:30am and 9:30am services next weekend, Sunday 26th May 2019.
Following are some brief details about Gloria's ministry:
Gloria was the first Aboriginal woman to be ordained as a Priest in the Anglican Church of Australia.
She has been involved in parish ministry but felt a calling to explore new forms of culturally appropriate ministry which led to the establishment of Walkabout Ministries.
Walkabout Ministries encompasses chaplaincy at the Orana Juvenile Justice Centre in Dubbo, Women’s camps, Men’s camps (led by Gloria’s husband, Eddie), an Elders’ outreach group, Women’s dinners and ‘Women of the Bible’ days, baptisms, an annual Christian rally, and a Reconciliation lunch.
On top of her busy local program, Gloria is also Chairperson of NATSIAC, the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglican Council.
We are followers of Jesus Christ, who, with God’s help are encouraging Spirit-filled people to share and teach God’s word as we serve and love others.
To be a growing faith community of lives transformed by Christ.
