Uniting Church Minister, Rev. Ivan Roberts, received a Medal (OAM) of the Order of Australia for his service to the Church and to the Myall Creek Memorial on January 26. He is a resource worker with Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (UAICC).
Rev. Roberts told Insights that making the Australia Day 2018 Honours List and receiving the award came out of left field.
“I was a little taken aback. I’ve just seen the work that I do very much a part of the natural areas of interest for the Uniting Church and a part of my calling,” said Rev. Roberts.
“Our work in interfaith and cross cultural ministry is just what we do and who we are.
