About Anglican Parish of the East Coast, Tasmania

East Coast Anglican is an evangelical church in a rural part of Tasmania. After two years without a minister, the parish appointed a full-time minister at the beginning of 2021, and are focusing on prayerfully leading people to follow Jesus, grow like Jesus and serve for Jesus.

There are weekly Sunday church gatherings in Swansea and Triabunna which combine traditional, contemporary and all-ages elements. They hold occasional church gatherings in the small farming community of Woodsdale, and Christmas and Easter celebrations in a hired church building in Bicheno. There is also a monthly chapel service at the May Shaw Residential Aged Care home in Swansea. There are several thriving small groups.

Under God, they are looking for opportunities to introduce local families to Jesus and see them come to him in repentance and faith. They have recently started an after-school primary kids club with 10-12 kids attending regularly. In partnership with the Salvos they run a weekly free lunch at the RSL for anyone who wants company.

They have dreams of starting ministries including a playtime for kids and their parents/carers, and a regular BBQ after church on Sunday to connect with the Kids’ Club Families. There are lots of opportunities to creatively share the gospel with the communities of the East Coast of Tasmania – they are looking for someone to partner with them to pray, plan and share Jesus in this beautiful place.

About Anglican Diocese of Tasmania

Bishop Richard Condie, the current Bishop, wants making disciples of Jesus to be at the core of everything we do. He also highly values training and support for church leaders – this includes each ministry leader in the Diocese having a coach/mentor, being in a cohort with others at the same life/ministry stage, and money and time given from the parish for professional development each year.

The current group of clergy/ministry leaders (about 80 in total) meet together twice a year and are highly supportive of each other in gospel partnership.
