We were excited in 2019 to introduce the Anglicare WA Church Community Fund that provides grants of up to $1,000 for community development to local congregations. We are already seeing Anglican churches growing their outreach and service in their localities. Darlington, Warnbro and Wongan Hills/Dalwallinu Parishes have used the Fund to grow their connection to people in their local area and offer community support through their services.
The Parish of Wongan Hills invited local members to make meals for those in need in their community. They experienced the joy of delivering meals to families facing challenges including a recent hip replacement, a suicide in a family, a battle with cancer and a husband whose wife had had a stroke. The Parish also hosted a special lunch to connect members of the community.
