Anglican Board of Missions
ABM’s philosophy is based on a belief in holistic mission – that God calls us to serve people in all aspects of their lives, from the spiritual to the practical. Their mission also includes providing health and education services, as well as assisting in economic development initiatives. St John’s Anglican Church is blessed to be able to financially contribute to the mission of ABM.
Church Missionary Society
CMS aims are to reach gospel-poor people for Christ, equip Christian leaders for church and society and engage churches in cross-cultural mission. CMS endeavours to develop a greater focus on our near neighbours in the South-East Asia and Paciﬁc region. St John’s Anglican Church is blessed to be able to financially contribute to the mission of CMS.
Bush Ministry Fund
The aim of BMF is to maintain a caring ministry to families who live in towns and on properties in rural and remote area. Through these grants clergy can visit any property and are available to offer care and spiritual support, not only to Anglicans, but to anybody who seeks assistance in the community. St John’s Anglican Church is blessed to be able to financially contribute to the mission of BMF.
Bush Church Aid
These events are held four times a year on Saturday mornings at a range of cafe venues around Hervey Bay. Guest speakers are invited to address the gathering, generally on subjects of particular interest to Christian women of all ages.
The breakfasts provide the perfect opportunity to meet socially while learning valuable information on a host of stimulating subjects.
Koroipita Model Town
This joint project between St John’s Anglican Church and Fraser Coast Anglican College is situated just outside Lautoka, Fiji. The Koroipita project was begun by Peter Drysdale and is primarily funded through New Zealand Aid. As part of this mission to Fiji, parishioners from our church have constructed houses, extensions to houses, built chicken coops, cookhouses, single beds, tables and security gates. We look forward to our annual trip to assist with the ongoing ministry of this mission.
Love in a Shoebox
Throughout the year, members of our church donate school supplies, hygiene products, clothing and cuddle toys as part of Operation Christmas Child. The items are packed into brightly wrapped shoeboxes, blessed and sent off around the middle of October to children in the South Pacific to share the Christmas spirit.
