The Bush Ministry Fund (BMF) was established in 1998 by our diocese to provide support for struggling parishes and clergy in the western region of our diocese.
When you consider, for instance, that the Maranoa-Warrego Anglican Mission Area (MWAMA) has one member of the clergy (working closely with fantastic lay leadership) covering an approximate area of 30,000 km2 which is the same size as Belgium, and one and a half times larger than the modern State of Israel, one can see the need! The support of BMF enables our diocese to maintain a caring ministry to families who live in towns and on properties in rural and remote areas. Through BMF grants, clergy can visit any property and are available to offer care and spiritual support, not only to Anglicans, but to anybody who seeks assistance in the community.
“In God’s grace the Bush Ministry Fund (BMF) has continued to support and enable ministry in many communities out west this year, and there is much to be thankful for,” says the Bishop of the Western Region, The Right Rev’d Cameron Venables.
