Coordinate exists to encourage and facilitate the translation of the Bible and other resources into Australian Indigenous languages. As a project of the Northern Regional Council of Congress (NRCC), and the Uniting Church in Australia Northern Synod, Coordinate supports scripture projects across four areas in Northern and Central Australia.
Indigenous Scripture projects grow from Indigenous Christians' inspiration and initiative. New and existing networks in Aboriginal communities are fundamental to the ongoing success of these Scripture projects. In this context, Coordinate seeks to nurture partnerships through relationships and local support workers. Coordinate collaborates with other organisations (eg: Australian Society for Indigenous Languages, Bible Society Australia, Nungalinya College), to provide linguistic expertise, training, and new technologies for Indigenous Scripture workers. Coordinate is also involved in raising nation-wide awareness of Indigenous languages and scripture projects.
