Senator Scott Ryan ( http://scottryan.com.au/biography ) set the record for the biggest Bible at the swearing in of the Abbott Ministry. It’s actually a family Bible from the 1880s, carried at the request of his 94-year-old grandmother.




Robert Garren the son of a Congregational minister helped draft Australia's Federal Constitution and was appointed the Secretary to the Attorney General's dept on the 1 January 1901, becoming Australia's first federal public servant, wrote this poem:



"Help us build a nation,
A people proud and free -
Proud of our high vocation,
Humble, O Lord, to Thee.
Aflame with high endeavour,
Though many paths be trod,
Keep us united ever,
One people, serving God." 
By Robert Randolph Garran.

He arrived with the first fleet. On 3rd February 1788 Rev. Johnson held the first Christian service in Australia. The day will now be celebrated on the first Sunday in February each year. The date for 2017 will be Sunday 5th February.
