Each year on the 26th of January, our nation commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet into Sydney in 1788, the beginning of the establishment of Australia.

As much as this has become important for Australians, so too is the understanding of Australia's Christian heritage to many across the nation.

As Australia Day fast approaches, why not take the opportunity to learn more about the birth and growth of Christianity in Australia.

Visit www.chr.org.au for more information, and to download a comprehensive presentation detailing individuals, institutions, documents and events important to the establishment of our Australian Christian heritage.

Also, for the first time this year, Australians will be celebrating the National Christian Heritage Sunday on the 3rd of February. For more details and to find out how you can participate, visit the official website here.
