The Longbeach Anglican Church places great emphasis on local and overseas mission. 12.5% of our income was allocated in the past year to various ministries that places an emphasis on making Jesus known, forming disciples and leadership development. Families we have support are:
David focuses on strengthening church leadership through Bible teaching and encouraging various groups in discipleship. Prue teaches audiological skills at two centres in the town and plans to start training health centre workers in ear health. They returned to the Republic of Congo in August 2021.
Derek and Rosemary work with Aboriginal Christians and leaders in Darwin. They seek to encourage and support them in reaching out to others. They are part of the Ministry Development Team of the Anglican Diocese of the Northern Territory.
