THE ANGLICAN CHURCHES OF THE QUAMBY PARISH

Unity of three churches in one Parish


THIS WEEKS SERVICE

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Anglican Parish of Quamby

Three churches – one Parish

 

We are asking for your help to save our 3 Churches, 1 Rectory, 1 Hall and 2 graveyards.

The Anglican Diocese of Tasmania estimates it will need approximately $8 million for the National redress scheme to provide financial support to the victims of sexual abuse.  There are 75 churches in Tasmania to be sold and this will affect all 48 Parishes in the Diocese.  Parishes will also provide funds from previous property sales and cash reserves.

To our great distress, all our churches, Westbury, Hagley and Carrick have been placed on the sale list.  This has caused concern to the Parish, the community and those who have loved ones buried in our graveyards and cemetery. 

We have been advised by the Bishop and the Registrar, there is a chance to save these churches with a concrete proposal by the following method;

A. Finding funds for the redress scheme of approx. $216,000.00

B.     Submitting detailed submissions why we should keep

our churches open.

C.    Become a sustainable Parish by finding 2 years Stipend for a Priest,

which will be $90,000.00 per annum

Parish Council are working on these items to achieve the required result.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Individual members of the community are invited to write to the Registrar prior to 1st September, 2018 stating why these places of worship and spiritual comfort should not be closed.  This is a tangible way to assist us in our submission.

Letters should be addressed to

The Registrar,

Anglican Diocese of Tasmania,

GPO BOX 748

HOBART. 7001
