Anglican Missions has launched an Emergency Appeal to support the Ali-Ahli Arab Anglican Hospital in Gaza as it responds to the tragic events of early May when 61 people lost their lives and 2,768 people were injured. The Hospital, in the centre of Gaza City, treats over 45,000 patients a year and is a haven of peace and hope in in the middle of one of the world's most troubled areas. The Hospital needs urgent financial support in order to obtain emergency medicine and medical supplies and the Diocese of Jerusalem has asked the Anglican Communion for help. more»
As you know, Anglican Missions launched an emergency appeal in early February, following Cyclone Gita, which has been generously supported. In identifying how best these donations should be spent, the Anglican Church in Tonga, has requested building materials (which are in short supply) and tools to help repair damaged church facilities and residential dwellings in areas impacted by the Cyclone.
If you live in Auckland and have any tools (such as hammers, screw drivers, crow-bars) that you no longer need, please can you contact Father Lui Tuilotolava on 027 286 4064 and he will arrange for them to be picked up and added to the shipment of supplies. more»
GREAT NEWS!!! From the Golden Oldies Mission organisers: - "Just to let you know, with the success of Golden Oldies Missions over the past 6-years we have been able to secure some improved discounts on our costs. The benefits are that this year we can now discount the Mission fee down to a New Total Mission Fee of $2,499. That's a saving of $400!
We are continuing to prepare for the mission with time spent at hospitals, a school specialising in second-chance education, St Christopher's orphanage, a day trip to the remote coastal fishing village in Fijian long boats, visits to remote villages and squatter settlements, and meeting people from a variety of churches.
Places are still available. See Poster more»
