WELCOME TO ST JOHN’S ANGLICAN CATHEDRAL, BRISBANE
St John’s Cathedral is home to a community which seeks to bring the best of Anglican tradition into dialogue with the issues and needs of our day.
We strive for open-minded conversation, seek to practice inclusion, and reflect on how we might see our beliefs put into action. We want this to be a place where people are encouraged to seek God and progress their own spiritual journeys.
The Cathedral itself, a renowned Brisbane landmark, serves as a magnet, where diverse people gather to worship, celebrate, seek solace, converse and learn.

OUTREACH – APRIL 2018
At this time each year, we support the annual Easter Appeal of the Anglican Board of Mission (ABM).
During April 2018, we support St John’s Seminary in Kitwe, Zambia – the national seminary of the Anglican Church in the central African country.
The Seminary trains ordinands and clergy from all five Anglican dioceses across Zambia, preparing them to minister in fast-growing urban and rural congregations of the Church.
To enable students from poor dioceses to attend, it does not charge tuition fees and is dependent on a monthly grant from the national Church. This grant is insufficient to cover the Seminary’s expenses, and they are dependent on donor aid for staff salary support, maintenance, internet facility, and library resources.
One of the theological students at St John’s Seminary is Austin Ng’andwe who was born in Ndola, Zambia in 1990, one of nine children, with strong Anglican parents.
He is studying for a Bachelor of Theology degree, and writes that through seminary life God has brought him to a place where he can experience a death to his own self and resurrection to the reality into which God has called him.
Can we support St John’s Seminary with the cost of internet support ($1,000) so that passionate, dedicated people like Austin may pursue the call to the ordained ministry, enabling the spread of the Gospel and the strengthening of the Church across Zambia and beyond?
April Outreach envelopes are available at the Outreach Board in the Narthex and from St Martin’s House reception.
