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 – AUGUST 2019
SIX ORANGE CHAIRS OF CHANGE

Most of us don’t know what it’s like to spend a night on the street, but nearly all of us could relate to being cash-strapped at some time. An unexpected bill, a medical emergency or maybe the breakdown of a relationship – it doesn’t take long before money is tight
… too tight.

Orange Sky Australia helps by creating a safe, positive and supportive environment for such people, who are far too often ignored and feel disconnected from the community. Orange Sky deliberately connects our friends in need by offering free laundry, showers and most importantly, conversation.

Having clean clothes was important, but giving time to people and genuinely listening to their experiences meant so much more. That’s why, at Orange Sky, the mission doesn’t involve words like ‘laundry’ or ‘washing’ – the mission is simply to positively connect communities. The most important bits of infrastructure are six orange chairs which emerge wherever the van stops.

Every week around Australia, 1,300 volunteers sit on orange chairs and chat. There, they experience first-hand the tough realities for our friends on the street. But, more than that they learn the power of connection and conversation. Those six orange chairs are where barriers are broken down, stereotypes are challenged, relationships are built and connections are formed. Every day at Orange Sky is a demonstration of how a positive connection can transform a person’s life.

At St John’s Cathedral, we value the importance of community and welcoming the stranger. It costs $288 for an entire shift of genuine conversation, clean clothes and warm showers. Can we support Orange Sky to provide at least five shifts of life-changing connections for our friends on the streets?

That’s only $1,440 – roughly the cost of 360 cups of coffee. Think about the impact that this small contribution might have for our friends on the street.

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.
