It’s a busy time at Anglican Missions, and the need for our generous giving is great. Not only are we in the middle of our Lenten appeal, but Anglican Missions has responded to the Christchurch shootings with an emergency appeal with funds going to Victim Support, and another emergency appeal to support our Anglican brothers and sisters in Mozambique affected by the disastrous Cyclone Idai. Here are some quick summaries of the appeals, with links to the appropriate pages on the Anglican Missions website.
This year’s Anglican Missions Lenten Appeal supports three projects: Christ Anglican School in Nazareth, Holy Land Institute for Deaf and Deaf-Blind students in Salt, Jordan; and Water for All in Fiji. Lenten Appeal resources have been sent to parishes and individual supporters. On the Anglican Missions website, you can also find the “How to Guide” for the appeal, as well as details of how to donate, and prayer points to use for these projects throughout the Lenten season.
Please do contact the Anglican Missions office on 04 473 5172 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more envelopes or have any questions.
Christchurch shooting appeal
Anglican Missions has launched a Relief Appeal to demonstrate the Aroha of the Anglican Church and its members towards the victims and families of the Christchurch Mosque shootings. It is a small way we can help. Victim Support is the official charity for the Christchurch mosque shootings.
Cyclone Idai swept through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe two weeks ago, affecting 3 million people and causing over 750 deaths. Anglican Missions has launched this appeal to support the Diocese of Niassa as it helps communities affected by the floods to purchase seeds and re-establish crops. This will help ensure a continuity of food and to help communities get back on their feet.
