Support social action in churches
Anglicare provides grants to support social action in churches. In line with its Ends Policy, Anglicare encourages churches to be actively involved in mission, to love and serve the Tasmanian community in the name of Christ.
Margaret Savage, Anglicare’s Parish Community Development Worker, recently presented St Mark’s Bellerive and St David’s Cathedral with grants enabling the continuation of two valuable outreach programs.
St Mark’s Bellerive hosts a Breakfast Club at Clarence High School every Thursday morning, providing food and a friendly supportive environment for young people to meet.
The program has allowed the parish to make strong links with the High School and provide a valuable contribution to students’ practical and physical wellbeing.
St David’s Cathedral provides pastoral care and practical assistance to a growing disadvantaged multicultural group within the Cathedral’s care.
This grant provides some financial resources to cover the incidental costs associated with resilience building, practical support and general pastoral care for this community.
