Mission Outreach

St Mary’s is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in supporting missionaries with our money and with our prayers. Every second year, a small team from our church travels to Chibobo, Zambia to assist in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.

“ BCA shares the gospel, builds up the church, and cares for people all around Australia. Field Staff serve in regional and remote parts of Australia. Locals in these places are removed from cities, live in sparsely populated towns (sometimes as small as a few hundred people), and often don’t benefit from strong support networks of family and friends. Churches in these areas can struggle, ongoing fellowship can be hard to maintain, and encouragement can become a rarity.
“Ridley Melbourne is a leading evangelical college that provides training for Anglicans and non-Anglicans, for both church-based and para-church ministry.”
