Mission support

For over 100 years, St Andrew’s South Brisbane has been sending out missionaries and supporting workers in gospel-poor communities both in Australia and overseas. During this time, we have sent more than 30 full-time missionaries and many more short-term workers, to far-flung fields.

St Andrew’s South Brisbane currently provides financial, personal and prayer support to folk working in specialised ministries under the auspices of Church Missionary Society (CMS), Summer Institute of Linguistics Australia (SILA), The Bush Church Aid Society (BCA), Servants to Asia’s Urban Poor, Brisbane State High School (BSHS) Chaplaincy and Indigenous Christian Leadership.

We also provide personal and prayer support to a number of retired mission workers.

CMS: Gordon and Ruth (Asia), Sylvia Jeanes (Malaysia, retired), Rev Lex and Mrs June Macqueen (NSW, retired)
SILA: Graham and Ellie Scott (Melbourne)
BCA: Rev David and Mrs Crystal Fell (Norfolk Island) – pictured above
Servants: Mark and Cathy Delaney (Brisbane) & Tom (Asia)
BSHS Chaplaincy: Gabbrielle Geerling
Indigenous Christian Leadership: Aunty Jean Phillips

We continue to pray for former parishioners, Reverends Rob and Jenni Weekes, working in Alice Springs, Rob as Police, Fire and Emergency Services Chaplain, and Jenni as Hospital Chaplain.

A missionary prayer breakfast is held monthly, and congregational members are provided with monthly missionary prayer updates. For more information, contact Rev Ian McGrath.

Once a month, Jenny Otto organises Gold Coin Sunday, when parishioners are encouraged to give one or more gold coins to support that month’s chosen Christian mission organisation or activity. For more information, contact Jenny Otto.
