Anglicare community collection

Each year, St Martin’s partners with other local churches to support the work of Anglicare through Community Collection. together we collect more than 10 tonnes of food which Anglicare uses to reach out to families in need in Sydney's West. We thank everyone who participated and contributed towards this project.

Angicare Toys and tucker

Christmas is a special time – a time to be filled with the joy of Christ and thanksgiving for his birth. Toys ‘n’ Tucker, an initiative of Anglicare Sydney, aims to share the joy of Christmas by providing food and gifts for those who would otherwise go without. We believe that Christmas is a time to give, to share and to be a blessing to those in our community who need it most.

Church Missionary Society (CMS)

CMS is a fellowship of Christian people and churches committed to global mission. They work with churches to set apart long-term workers who cross cultures to share the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Millions of men, women and children around the world do not know Jesus. The world is growing and changing rapidly. But the gospel of Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Compassion child sponsership

Sponsorship gives kids safe places to play, the chance to see a doctor when they’re sick, education, and the opportunity to discover Jesus’ incredible love for them. 

Sponsor a child. Give them a brighter future so they, and eventually their own children, can live free from poverty.

Sponsored children are more likely to grow up to be employed and be leaders in their communities and churches.
