Lenten Appeal 2014

Donate for welfare, church growth, & education

webpic_la2014.jpgThe 2014 Lenten Appeal supported some great projects for the Province of Jerusalem & the Middle East and the Diocese of Polynesia. The 2014 Lenten Appeal supported:

  • Gambella Clergy: a basic salary is needed for clergy in Gambella, Ethiopia who minister to large but poor congregations who cannot yet afford to pay the salary themselves
  • Baghdad School: St George's Church in Baghdad wishes to expand on its existing kindergarten to offer classes for primary school children
  • House of Sarah: counselling services in Fiji at the House of Sarah have provided a warm hand and heart to many in desperate need of support.

The Lenten Appeal ran from Wednesday the 5th of March (Ash Wednesday) till Sunday the 20th of April (Easter Day).

    Warm Hearts and Hands in Suva: Most of us don't share our pain or distress easily. If we do, we will look for someone we can trust, who we know will listen without judgement or condemnation. The House of Sarah is a project of the Anglican Associate of Women (AAW). The objective is to provide a listening ear, a warm heart, a welcoming hand to those who are facing difficulties in their relationships with others. Find out more»

    Building a New lraq: The Church of St. George's in Baghdad has a desire to set up a primary school within the compound of the Church, despite the tough situation and insecurity in the country. The kindergarten at St George's was established in the compound three years ago. The kindergarten offers a very modern curriculum, and when the children graduated they didn't find the local primary schools adequate for the children's needs. The parents have asked the Church to establish a primary school in order to continue their children's education at the high level. Find out more»

    A Growing Church: As the churches in Gambella grow, the need to provide a salary for priests is becoming urgent. More and more souls are being drawn towards Christ. Even though the people give sacrificially, it is not sufficient to fund a small salary for their priests who are active in discipleship, evangelism, and planting new churches. As a result, the need for support from the wider church community is vital. Bishop Grant and Archbishop Mouneer Hanna Anis have asked for our help. Your support will make a huge impact to the people of Gambella, Ethiopia, enabling the priests of the region to continue their ministry. Find out more»
