Each congregation also has an appointed mission ‘champion’ who has an ongoing relationship with the misison partners, and acts as the point of contact between the mission partner and the congregation. Our children’s programs support the same missionaries as the associated congregation, and Youth Group has joined the 7pm service supporting Tim & Anglicare. There will also be regular prayer for and monthly updates on these mission partners in our Sunday services.

We continue our commitment to have grace flow through us by financially supporting other missionaries and projects through our Annual Thanksgiving Day, which will be on the 17th of September 2023.

Who do we support as a Church?

At St Michael’s we support mission through deep, practical, and prayerful partnership.

As a church we support a number of missionaries and organisations, both near and afar. This support is financial, practical, spiritual, and relational. To partner with depth and meaningful relationship, each congregation has one focus missionary, and one focus organisation (see below).
