Mission

Mission Minstry Team

As Christians we are called to Mission. The Mission Ministry Team meets on the third Tuesday of each month to discuss outreach opportunities. They oversee the placement of parish volunteers in the broader community with selected outreach centres that have been assessed to meet specific parish criteria.

They are responsible for the investigation and possible introduction of a Sister Parish (Partnering Program) with a parish in East Timor.


Opportunities for parishioners who are unable to contribute physically, but who still wish to be involved in mission, are provided by this team.


Prayer is an important part of any mission work and the Mission Ministry Team thanks you for yours.

Religious Education in State Schools    

Queensland Law permits all Religious denominations to teach Religious Education in State Schools. Of the 3 State Primary Schools in the area, our Parish provides 20 teachers at Albany Hills State Primary School. R.E. taught at the School is Christianity, crossing all denominational boundaries. Teachers’ ages range from the 30’s to Grandparents. Work and commitments claim some volunteers each year, so this ministry is constantly in need of new Teachers.

 • Full training given to each volunteer

• Teaching manuals provided

• Ongoing support given

• No teaching experience necessary.

 Time expenditure for each volunteer is one or two 1/2hr lessons per week, plus a couple of hours preparation. This varies according to the content of the Lesson and the enthusiasm of the volunteer. If you feel drawn to this ministry, we’d love to hear from you. “Come and see”

St Vincent de Paul Society

More Than a Hand Out, a Hand Up

All Saints Conference is part of a worldwide community, established in Paris in 1833, who put their Christian faith into action by helping people in need personally, materially and socially. Attending to these we attend to their spiritual needs.

The members share their time and talent, striving to develop their own faith through prayer, spiritual reading and discussion, providing an opportunity to review what has been done and what needs to be done. Reporting on and discussing visits, which are always done in pairs, and other activities at fortnightly meetings in the Parish Centre helps us to find better ways of responding. It enables us to do together what we could never do alone, coming together in mutual support and encouragement.

At the heart of all we do is the sharing of ourselves, person to person, and the sharing of what we have – food, clothing, shelter, furniture, skills, advice etc. We aim to help people back onto their feet, so they can decide the direction of their lives.

We are committed to including the Parish Community in our activities through fund raising, supplying Christmas hampers to local families and providing donation bins in the Parish Centre for unwanted clothing and goods to go to our local Vinnies Shops at Eatons Hill and Lawnton.
