our news for you

17 June 2021

We have launched the 'Get one. Give one.' campaign, an Anglican Church wide (and soon to be New Zealand wide) campaign! Already over $6500 has been raised!

In being thankful for the availability of vaccines in our country, we are aware that many people are not so fortunate. The Get one. Give one. Campaign aims to protect and support the poorest and most vulnerable.

When you get your Covid-19 vaccine, give $10 so that one of the world's most vulnerable can get theirs. $50 covers a family of five and $100 covers two families!

Supporting the 'Get One. Give One.' campaign is simple, here are some ways your community can help:

  • Spread the word with family, friends and your workplace. This is a chance for families, workplaces, schools and churches to mobilise together to make a difference.
  • Organise a fundraising event. Downloadable promotional print and digital resources, as well as ideas for how to run Get one. Give one. fundraising events, can be found online here.
  • Put up the campaign web banner and Facebook cover photo on your timeline to show your support.

Donations are being directed through Givealittle, rather than through Anglican Missions.
You can read more on our website Appeals tab and the article in Anglican Taonga online

Resources for your parish are available via our dropbox (if you have difficulty accessing resources please contact Linda on (04) 473-5172 or at info@angmissions.org.nz).

THANK YOU all who have donated so far to our appeal to support the Al Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza. So far we have raised $18,270 which will make a huge difference to their ability to assist those affected by recent conflict, to build up their supplies again and continue to be a beacon of hope in the region!

We will be closing off the Appeal at the end of this month, but ithe meantime you can still donate here 
Resources are also available to promote the Emergency Appeal for Gaza
