Each year St Philip's supports 3 mission projects. A local, national and international project with financial and prayer support. 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 2017 and 2018 mission projects

  • Our local mission project is St Philip's Care. Our outreach program at the Northbourne Community Centre, run by Revd Robin Moore. We are focussing on this project, as we have struggled to get outside funding to support it while the redevelopment along Northbourne Avenue occurs. The future direction of the program is a unknown at this stage and will become clearer as the redevelopment progresses.

  • Our national mission project is Australia: Youth Engagment Across The Top End Remote Communities

  • Our international mission project is The Myanmar Education program

Our 2015 and 2016 mission projects

  • Our local mission project is 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 is 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.

  • Our international mission project is support for the Al Ahli Arab Gaza hospital a vital work of the Diocese of Jerusalem. 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. The political status of Gaza affects all aspects of life because of restrictions on movement of materials and people in and out. Electricity, medicines, food, fuel, and personnel are all restricted to some extent.
