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.

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.

​The Province of Queensland Archibishop’s November Appeal supports the work of Newton Theological College, located in the beautiful Oro Province of Papua New Guinea. The only facility in PNG that trains candidates for priesthood in the Anglican Church, Newton College offers a three-year Diploma in Theology. At any one time there are up to 22 students living on campus, often accompanied by their families.

We have supported previous appeals for Newton College – most recently in February 2018 – to improve the physical infrastructure, curriculum development and further education of teaching staff. As well as expanding library facilities and book stocks to assist students with research and essay writing, this earlier appeal also resulted in the acquisition of a more powerful water pump, complete with piping and fitting, which has done much to improve the water supply and even, in some houses, to provide an occasional shower.

But five more water tanks are still required. As well, ongoing maintenance and repairs continue to be necessary to ensure the buildings are fit to fulfill their purpose. $60,000 is needed for water tanks, payments to teaching staff, student materials, establishment and stocking of a chicken run to improve the level of protein available to students, and to fund sewing machines for participants in the literacy and life skills program.

Can we contribute at least $1,000 towards the cost of supporting Newton Theological College in 2020?
(Note: the cost of a new water tank is $2,000.)
