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.

Peace,
Peter Catt +
Dean of Brisbane

OUTREACH – JUNE 2019
ACRT #dignitynotdestitution

A shared Christian vision of compassion and hospitality for asylum seekers and refugees

The Australian Churches Refugee Taskforce (ACRT) promotes a shared Christian vision of compassion and hospitality for asylum seekers and refugees. The churches and their agencies work together to advocate for just and humane policies.

Among the many current projects supported by the ACRT is the DIGNITY NOT DESTITUTION campaign, based on the belief that people who are legally in Australia seeking asylum should not be forced into destitution because of Government changes to what is known as ‘Status Resolution Support Services’.

There is no agency in Australia funded by the Government to work with people seeking asylum who have become destitute. Moreover, destitute asylum seekers are often not eligible for mainstream services, funded by Government, due to their visa status.

As Christians we are challenged to welcome ‘the other’ into our midst. As Christians, we know that we might find the face of Christ in anyone, including those who seek the safety we enjoy. As Christians, we are Christ’s agents in this world and, as such, are invited to consider how Christ might respond to this need.

Can we help the ACRT to support applications for asylum?

ADVOCATE & COMMUNITY
ORGANISER

St John’s Anglican Cathedral has a role vacant for an Advocate & Community Organiser, with a focus on climate justice.

This role’s overall purpose is to advance and support the efforts of people of faith and the Christian churches, particularly in Queensland, in seeking climate justice. Specifically this includes to:

  • ensure there are articulate and clear faith voices in the public discussion about dealing with climate change, as a cohort of people, with distinct views and contributions to make (to those of existing lobby, sectoral or campaign groups);   and
  • encourage, support and mobilise people of faith to take action seeking climate justice.

Whilst it is based within St John’s Cathedral, this role will serve the shared mission of the broader Christian Church in stewardship and caring for creation, it will work ecumenically, and in some instances interfaith, and with many other people across relevant communities.

OUR PLACE IN HISTORY:
THE DEANERY’S HERITAGE APPEAL

The National Trust of Australia (Queensland) has listed The Deanery (Adelaide House) – the first Government House when Queensland was created on 10th December 1859. The balcony on which Sir George Bowen read the proclamation that day is in need of a great deal of work to restore it to a stable and safe condition. This means that in the Trust’s view it is essential to Australia’s heritage and must be preserved.

Donations to the National Trust of Australia (Queensland) for this appeal are allowable as deductions for tax purposes.
