Bushfire emergency relief – East Coast of Australia 

The Anglican Relief & Development Fund Australia is appealing for prayer (most importantly!) and financial donations to help those who have been experiencing distress and misfortune in bushfire regions along the East Coast of Australia – and in recent weeks throughout Australia.

Funds raised from this Appeal will be used to support on-the-ground pastoral care provided by local Anglican communities including parish clergy, lay volunteers and emergency chaplains. We are keen to promote and support the provision of psychological first aid, personal support and emotional spiritual care, as well as the provision of emergency preparedness resources which are especially useful to Anglican parishes and dioceses.


Working together, we demonstrate the love of Christ and spread the Gospel by helping the poor and needy through leaders working in their own communities.

Our Mission

We believe that the gospel sets us free to love our neighbours as Christ loves us - as an expression of God's transforming grace. We believe the great commission is integral to the great commandment.


Our projects are rigorously researched before approval to determine risk, impact, and sustainability. Projects are designed to meet specific goals and are assessed for success or failure upon completion.
