Each year St Philip's supports three mission projects — a local, national and international project — with money and prayer. During the year we give a special focus to each project with a service dedicated to each, information, speakers, special prayers and the collection of gifts.
Our local mission project is Companion House. Companion House is a non government community based organisation. It works with adults and children who have sought safety in Australia from persecution, torture and war related trauma.
Our national mission project is Australia Youth Engagement. This project funds Church initiatives that engage young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. In the Northern Territory, Aboriginal leaders seek to break some of the destructive cycles they observe, by engaging their young people more in the church.
Our international mission project is Zambia Gender and Governance Project. This year the project aims to see: 30% decrease in gender-based violence across four villages comprising 12,795 people, 300 people accessing legal advice about gender-based violence, 40% of all reported cases of GBV successfully closed, 225 men trained and actively involved in the Men Engage Network aimed at preventing Gender-based Violence, 95 people accessing micro loans to establish small businesses

Our local mission project was support for the Common Ground accommodation project. Common Ground provides people who are homeless or who have a low income with safe and secure accommodation at a rent affordable in their circumstances — together with support services promoting independence and self-sufficiency.
Our national project was to support Wontulp-Bi-Buya College, based in Cairns. The College provides leadership training for Indigenous people in Queensland and beyond in the fields of theology, mental health and community development.

The hospital work to provide the best medical care possible with gracious Christian care under the most adverse circumstances. It treats all people in need.
