Every church congregation strives to be missional, that is to support the five marks of mission of the Anglican Church. For some churches that means supporting mission agencies through prayer and raising funds. The Anglican Diocese of Bendigo supports a number of mission agencies.
Anglican Board of Mission
ABM is the national mission agency of the Anglican Church of Australia working with overseas and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities. ABM has a holistic view of God’s mission. It works with Anglican Church partners and others to see lives empowered and transformed spiritually, materially and socially. We help the Anglican Church and the wider community realise and respond to the invitation for all to be a part of God’s hope for the world.
Anglican Overseas Aid
Anglican Overseas Aid is an overseas relief and development agency of the Anglican Church of Australia. For more than 25 years Anglican Overseas Aid has been working for a peaceful, just and sustainable world free from poverty.
Bush Church Aid
Bush Church Aid has a heart for people living in remote and regional Australia. We are committed to going the distance to reach Australia for Christ.
People living in sparsely populated areas often don’t benefit from strong support networks. Churches in these areas can struggle financially due to fluctuating populations. Ongoing fellowship can be hard to maintain and encouragement can become a rarity.
In partnership with Anglican Dioceses across the country, Bush Church Aid places committed and gifted Christians in a variety of locations to help people connect with the grace of God revealed in Jesus.
Church Missionary Society
CMS (the Church Missionary Society of Australia) is a fellowship of Christian people and churches committed to global mission. We work with churches to set apart long-term workers who cross cultures to share the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
