It is a great injustice that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, the first inhabitants of the country, continue to be among the most disadvantaged Australians to this day. Colonisation and the ongoing impacts of racism and discrimination mean Indigenous Australians continue to experience much higher rates of infant mortality, suicide and incarceration, among many other things, than non-Indigenous Australians.
Living Water is a community church in Redfern that seeks to empower Indigenous Australians. They equip Indigenous Australians with the leadership skills necessary to lead their community’s towards a brighter future. Rev Matt Paterson and his wife have been working with the local community through youth mentoring, prison visits, regular fellowship and community events to role model to young people the power of community based leadership.
