Centennial Celebration photos!

11 December 2019

Anglican Missions’ Board and office recently joined with bishops from around Aotearoa, NZ and Polynesia and supporters to officially celebrate our 100 years of mission, A huge thank you to everyone, old and new, who has supported the work of Anglican Missions over the last 100 years. In that time we have raised millions of dollars for mission, in order to establish much-needed projects in Polynesia, Melanesia, the Middle East, South-East Asia, and Africa; supply emergency support for victims of natural disasters, attacks, and plagues, and support NZCMS missionaries and clergy in developing countries. We could not have done it without you!
