About Us

Welcome from the Archbishop, The Most Rev’d Dr Phillip Aspinall

Welcome to anglican focus, the official news site of the Anglican Church Southern Queensland (ACSQ). Our Diocese covers a geographical area of over 500,000 square kilometres, including metropolitan, regional and remote areas and urban, desert, rainforest and coastal terrain. Communities in this vast area are served by over 130 parishes, 20 Anglican schools, a theological college and Anglicare Southern Queensland’s community services. anglican focus reflects this rich diversity.

People across our Diocesan community contribute stories, reflections, features, devotions, Q&A interviews, reviews, images and video content. I hope you find our news site informative, engaging and nourishing.

Our vision is for:

An engaging and collaborative online publication nourishing and uniting a flourishing Diocesan faith community.

Our mission is:

To deliver a free community-owned news site for diverse ACSQ members to proclaim the Gospel, reflect, inform, advocate and resource in order to nourish spirituality and unite community.

Welcome from the Editor, Michelle McDonald

Welcome to anglican focus. Our Diocesan publication embraces a ‘community collaboration’, rather than ‘staff writer’, model and offers an alternative to both mainstream media and other Christian news sites. Collaborating daily with diverse people across our Diocesan community in the running of the news site is enjoyable and an enormous privilege.
