The Baptist Union of Victoria is committed to a range of issues relating to Justice and Advocacy – some of which are highlighted below. Each of these areas have resources that are available for use in large and small settings. Whilst we have a Justice and Advocacy week (4-10 September 2023) that we would encourage you to utilise these resources and participate in, the resources can be accessed at a time that best suits your context.
For general J&A resources including a small group guide, a sermon series starter or our Justice and Advocacy Devotions series, scroll down.
