  • September 2013 Appeal for Anglican Missions

    25 September 2013

    The challenges our church has faced over the last year has resulted in a large shortfall in money received vs. money pledged to our partners overseas. Although the giving is down, the Anglican Missions Board made a promise to our partners, and so has made a commitment, in faith, to meet our pledged support to them in 2013. But unless we can raise an extra $60,000 by the end of the year, we will need to reduce our commitment to each of our partners by between 5 to 10 percent next year. That's a lot of mission that can't happen any more. Can you help us to continue overseas mission by donating today? link»

  • From Bishop Victoria

    4 October 2010

    As you are aware the Christchurch Canterbury earthquake was equal in strength to the devastating earthquake that killed and tore asunder Haiti in January 2010. Relatively little recovery work has been done in response. There are many reasons for the difference in the destruction wrought by the two earthquakes, and the difference in the level of response, but those reasons are not the point. What matters is that we respond in love. Hence with this letter I invite the people of the Diocese of Christchurch, and beyond, to raise at least one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000.00) for the earthquake recovery and relief efforts in Haiti, by the time we gather at Synod on October 30th this year.
