New Churches for New Communities
But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.
Jeremiah 29:7 (ESV)
The Mission Property Committee is getting in ‘on the ground floor’ by buying land in developing areas of Sydney’s northwest and southwest. But the land is useless without facilities which new churches need to serve these new communities. Our mission is to build the facilities which will serve these new communities.
When all the sites designated for residential purposes are occupied, Sydney’s population will have grown by 700,000.
This is a great opportunity for parishes and our diocesan organisations to work together for the expansion of God’s Kingdom. This will be a collaborative effort with input from the local parish and agencies such as Anglicare, Anglican Retirement Villages and the Sydney Anglican Schools Corporation. We are seeking to honour Christ as Lord and Saviour in every community.
The five sites have all been purchased and construction for Stanhope Gardens will commence in October 2016, with the remaining four to be rolled out every two years after that.
