Mission Partners with St John's

"Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation."  - Jesus  (Mark 16:15  NIV)

St John's works with a number of other Christian organisations to spread the Good News about Jesus.


Chiba Japan - Chenny Thie

Chenny Thie works with CMS (Church Missionary Society) in Chiba Japan.

KGK (Christian Students Association) seeks to promote and coordinate Christian witness on campus. Regular bible studies and prayer meetings are held across campuses in Japan.

Upon arrival in Chiba (January 2016), Chenny will begin language and culture study for the next couple of years. Please pray that God will bless Chenny's first term in Japan by laying a strong foundation in Japanese language and culture so that it will be fruitful in her ministry with KGK in the long term. She hopes to be involved in mentoring and training young female leaders or working with international students.


Lightning Ridge NSW - David and Joanne Piper

David and Joanne work with BCA (Bush Church Aid) at the Lightning Ridge Community Church in outback NSW. The Pipers’ ministry in Lightning Ridge is among a wide variety of people such as farmers, miners, Aborigines, the mentally ill, addicts, and families - "The Ridge is a unique place for mission and ministry with many opportunities to reach out to a wide variety of people."

Since moving there in 2010, David worked as assistant minister under former BCA Field Staff, Mike and Chantalle Keith and is now the minister at Lightning Ridge Community Church.

David and Joanne have two young sons: Daniel (2 1/2 years old) and Luke (7 months).

Please pray for the Pipers as they minister with BCA in Lightning Ridge and for the church as they start to make longer-term plans.


Auburn Anglican Church

Auburn Anglican is in the middle of the most ethnically diverse suburb in Sydney and seeks to share the Gospel with people of all backgrounds and faiths - many of whom have only recently moved to Australia to live.

We support the work at Auburn both in prayer and financially. Our previous assistant minister Tim Cocks is the Rector of the Parish, and we also sent three of our families to assist in the work there.


Hornsby & Asquith District Christian Education Association (HADCEA)

HADCEA proclaims the good news about Jesus Christ to the students of the two public high schools that service suburbs from Hornsby north to the Hawkesbury River - Asquith Girls' High School and Asquith Boys' High School.

Two teachers are employed full time by HADCEA to teach Christian Studies at these high schools. These teachers are not employed by, nor funded by, the NSW Department of Education. HADCEA does not receive any external financial support and is therefore totally funded by the Christian Churches and community of the local area.
