Acknowledgement of Country
We acknowledge the Awabakal people, traditional custodians of this country on which we work, live, worship and pray. The place upon which we meet to worship and gather, was once known as "Ngorrion-ba"; "The place where the Emu breeds" and is now surrounded by the suburbs of Belmont North, Redhead and, Jewells . We pay our respects to and, pray God’s blessing upon, the Awabakal People and we extend that respect to their elders; past, present and emerging.
