Being Together: Nurturing Relationships

“The 2021 Diocesan theme ‘Being Together: Nurturing Relationships’ is a powerful reminder that we do belong together and that our relationships matter. Earlier this year Anglicare, St Andrew’s Anglican Church in Indooroopilly and Thread Together became partners. Together these partners have created a mobile wardrobe-in-a-van that distributes brand new clothing, shoes and accessories to people in need in Brisbane. Every day Anglicare staff see what it’s like for the one in eight Queenslanders who live in poverty. Some are women who are couch surfing and sleeping rough and staying out of sight to survive. Others are young people with everything they own stuffed into a backpack…The Thread Together project supports those who are doing it tough, and it connects people and builds community and friendships. Relationships grow every day,” says Archbishop Phillip Aspinall
