Chris Budden


Chris Budden has been a Minister of the Uniting Church for over 40 years. Sydney Brown once described him as a theological activist; the title he most appreciates. Besides local ministry he has been an adjunct member of faculty at United Theological College in Sydney, an associate researcher at the Public and Contextual Research Centre at Charles Sturt University, and a writer (contextual theology, ethics and justice, and issues of sovereignty and treaty). 

He has a particular interest in the way theology and church practices are shaped by relationships with power. He spent the last five years of full-time ministry as National Coordinator for the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress. He remains committed to supporting efforts to develop Indigenous theologies in Australia. His writings include Following Jesus in Invaded Space: Doing Theology on Aboriginal Land (Pickwick, 2009), and Why Indigenous Sovereignty Should Matter to Christians (Mediacom Education, 2018). He contributed to Unsettling the Word: Biblical Experiments in Decolonization (edited Steve Heinrichs; Orbis, 2019).
