Partners & Projects
ABM is structured into two distinct program areas: Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Program and Overseas Program.
Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Program

This program seeks to support Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Anglicans in providing Christian ministry to their own communities.
Projects such as support for ministry training in Queensland and the Northern Territory, and a gospel outreach program in Dubbo, New South Wales, assist Indigenous Anglicans in their ministries while also helping non-Indigenous Australians to learn more about the challenges which Indigenous Australians face.

The Anglican Board of Mission’s Overseas Program comprises two distinct programs – Church to Church and Community Development. The Church to Church program works with Anglican Church partners in the Pacific, Papua New Guinea, South-East Asia, Africa and the Middle East to help deliver theological education, mission and church support programs.
The Community Development program works with Anglican Church partners in the Pacific, Papua New Guinea, China, South-East Asia, Africa and the Middle East to help deliver grassroots, community driven development projects that cover issues such as basic health and education, food security and livelihood support. Projects undertaken through ABM’s Overseas Programs are carefully targeted and managed to ensure that those who need assistance are provided with opportunities to build upon and expand the gifts and talents already present in their communities.
Several of our overseas program projects emphasise the place of children and young people in terms of developing their capacity to confront some of the spiritual and social issues that their communities face. ABM’s Overseas Program’s commitment to working with Anglican communities throughout the world illustrates the ways in which these issues can be engaged in through a relationship based on working for love, hope and justice.
