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 – SEPTEMBER 2019
THE RAINBOW HUB

Moving overseas to study is at the same time both exciting and daunting: students are learning a new language and then studying in that language, immersing themselves in a new culture, and making new friends from Brisbane and all over the world. The challenges of studying overseas set a great foundation for future professionals.

For international students identifyings as DiGS (Diverse in Gender and Sexuality), the experience has the potential to be an isolated one. This is particularly so for those who have not yet been able to come out in their home countries.

The concept of a DiGS-specific service was developed by teachers and students at renowned education provider Navitas in a bid to ensure that every student has the best possible experience while in Australia. In that context, the Rainbow Hub was established to provide this safe and supportive environment for international DiGS students.

The Rainbow Hub community offers young DiGS students opportunity to meet like-minded souls, to hear their stories and learn from each other. Stories that speak from the heart speak a universal language.

The Rainbow Hub urgently needs a small fund to assist with providing supportive information for students as they settle in Brisbane, and promoting the availability of these services and activities online via a website and social media.

Because the international student community is only one block away from St John’s, they are our neighbours, and some international students already participate in our Cathedral community.

Can we give $1,000 to help our Rainbow neighbours to build online access and provide support to new international DiGS students arriving in Brisbane?

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.
