When is Anglicare Sunday?
The official date for Anglicare Sunday 2017 was October 15, but you can hold Anglicare Sunday at your church on any date.
Can someone from Anglicare speak at my church?
There are more than 110 churches across the three Anglican dioceses in which we work – Canberra and Goulburn, Bathurst and Riverina.
We would love to see each church host Anglicare Sunday but we don’t have enough Anglicare representatives to speak at all of them.
However, we are very excited to have a number of church volunteers who have become Anglicare Ambassadors. As an Anglicare Ambassador, you become the Anglicare spokesperson within your church to help encourage your church’s congregation to support our goal in stopping the cycle of generational poverty in our local communities. We provide Anglicare Ambassadors with everything they need to host an Anglicare Sunday including talking points, videos, flyers for seat drops and information about how to get involved. There is also opportunity for you to get involved throughout the year!
