Unfinished Business: Australia’s First Nations and Christianity
The Christian church has plenty to say sorry for in its 200 years or so of engagement with Australia’s First Nations. Christians were at the frontline when it came to denigrating and suppressing Aboriginal cultures. When children were removed from families, churches made it possible. It might be surprising, then, to learn that from the beginning of colonisation, churches consistently recognised that First Nations people have been victims of terrible injustice. So how did things go so wrong and what can Australians learn from this history?
In what promises to be a thought-provoking lecture, Dr Laura Rademaker will be speaking on Unfinished Business: Australia’s First Nations and Christianity at St Mark’s Anglican Church Darling Point. The lecture will be held at 6.30pm on Thursday 27 May 2021 at the church (1 Greenoaks Avenue, Darling Point). A livestream option will also be available.

Dr Rademaker is a Senior Lecturer in the School of History at the Australian National University, researching Australia’s First Nations and religious history. She is also the author of two books.
