This year marks the 150th Anniversary of the Coming of the Light in the Torres Strait. God was on both sides of the beaches that day in 1871: with the missionaries, and with the people on the beach who received them. Exciting developments in the Torres Strait include the establishment of a household of the Melanesian Brotherhood on Thursday Island and moves toward autonomy for the Torres Strait Island region within the Anglican Diocese of North Queensland.
Support through prayer is essential and is welcome.
The Diocese of North Queensland also needs funds for building up local leadership – through education, gathering for meetings and conferences, preparation of liturgical and educational material in local languages expressed in culturally appropriate ways, provision of means of communication, and travel.
Please consider donating generously to the appeal.
We also encourage you to read a letter from Bishop Keith Joseph where he reflects on the Coming of the Light and the vibrant Anglican Church in the Torres Strait.
