Anglicare News - Parish grants scheme

Supporting outreach

Anglicare recently provided a parish grant to support Midlands Anglican’s outreach in the local community.

The $2500 grant will assist the parish to prepare and distribute food hampers to families and older people in the area in the lead-up to Christmas.

Anglicare’s Parish Grants Scheme encourages parishes to respond to the needs of people as part of a shared mission to ‘love and serve the Tasmanian community in the name of Christ’. Grants have already been used for a variety of purposes including breakfast clubs at schools and the development of an information resource.

If your parish has an idea it wants to put into action in 2019, the Parish Grants Scheme could help to get it off the ground.

For more information contact Anglicare’s Parish and Community Development Worker Margaret Savage 6213 3656.
