Where we work


Our Missions grow and strengthen the Christian faith in Melanesia and the UK. Through prayer, people and giving, we work with the Anglican Church of Melanesia to further God’s Kingdom on Earth to enable everyone to flourish in God’s creation.

We have a longstanding trusted relationship with the Anglican Church in Melanesia, the four Anglican Religious Orders, church schools and other church organisations. We listen to each other, pray on these discussions and consider how we can best respond. We aim to celebrate and learn from the flourishing church in Melanesia and also help with any challenges they identify as needing assistance.
