Anglican Board of Mission Job Vacancy for Supporter Engagement Coordinator

The Anglican Board of Mission (ABM), the national mission agency of the Anglican Church of Australia, works with overseas and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities.

It is seeking a dynamic individual who has extensive experience in the Fundraising sector, and will be committed to the vision of ABM for a full-time, two year contract. The person will be comfortable with ABM’s Anglican ethos and must have experience in working in cross-cultural environments.

The Supporter Engagement Coordinator reports to the Executive Director and will have charge of strengthening ABM’s engagement and fundraising capacity in relation to its broad and diverse support base within the Anglican Church of Australia.

Regular giving to the parish

Lenten Liturgy

March 21, 2019

During the season of Lent there are customary seasonal modifications to the liturgy.

Most significantly, the ‘Gloria in Excelsis’ is replaced by the more solemn ‘Trisagion’ (three holies), the Alleluia is omitted throughout the liturgy and reserved until our celebration of the Resurrection, as is the Blessing.

Throughout Lent we use the Apostles Creed, which is the creed used at Baptism, focusing on it in preparation for the renewal of our Baptismal vows on Easter Day.
