Mission Update – Moore College and Anglican Aid

Church Governance, Ministries, Missions

In April, our Mission of the Month giving is directed to Moore College, and to Anglican Aid for their Overseas Ministry Fund.

Moore College recently celebrated the graduation of 119 students, including former members of St Michael’s, Seth F. with 1st class honours in his BDiv, and Peter Grice, the current Dean of Geraldton Cathedral, with merit for his MA in Theology. Christopher Hallyburton, the son of our former link missionaries in Chile for many years, was another. Brian Barker from St Michael’s continues his studies at Moore.

Moore College’s vision longs “to see faithful, thoughtful and biblical ministry which honours the Lord Jesus Christ in all the world.” They go on to state, “We enable men and women to deepen their knowledge of God, through higher education in the field of theology.” There are also post-graduate study and in-service training options, as well as their excellent suite of distance education options for Christians around the world.

Moore College has recently opened its new building which provides a great modern base for its mission, with larger lecture theatres, library and admin block, and space for other Christian ministries, as it seeks to serve the Anglican Diocese of Sydney and the world.

Funds from Anglican Aid’s Overseas Ministry Fund provide subsidies for African men and women from nations like Tanzania, South Africa, Egypt and Zimbabwe, to train at evangelical Bible colleges, mainly in their own cultural contexts.

Many of these students are already pastors of Anglican congregations but they have had little education and no opportunity for formal Bible college training. For as little as a dollar a day we can help train tomorrow’s evangelists, pastors and teachers across Africa to plant and grow churches and bring the message of Jesus to a new generation.

Parish Council Update

  • We received and discussed a FAQ report on the Easy English Church planting initiative for late Sunday mornings, following up the Q&A session. It was then resolved that Parish Council welcomes the Minister’s notification that from Sunday 30th April he intends to commence an extra morning service of public worship, such that Sunday services would then usually be conducted at St Michael’s at 8:00am, 9:30am, 11:00am, 5:00pm & 7:00pm.
  • The AGM is scheduled for Monday 27th March. Please consider nominations.
  • We noted the pastoral staff rescheduling the ‘Ministry Boot Camp’ to 9-15 October at the start of the ‘Equipping’ Term 4.
  • We noted that unusually compared to past years, the finances for January-February, when many people are away, were ahead of budget, for which we are thankful.
  • We were grateful for 22 who attended the working bee despite wet weather!
  • We clarified and reaffirmed our policy on lending out the jumping castle – only for ministry events, only when proper insurance and safe lifting conditions are in place.
  • We have 40A Mangerton Rd with a managing agent, with new tenants expected soon.
  • We were grateful for a small grant from Anglican Deaconess Ministries towards whiteboard etc. to better deliver ESL, including to refugees, applied by Sue Radkovic.
