Epiphany seeks to Engage in God’s mission both at home and abroad. One way we do this is by supporting missionaries who share the gospel in other countries.
Currently, we support two missionary families:
Chris and Grace Adams, serving in Timor-Leste with CMS Australia and the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Timor-Leste. Grace is supporting the fledgling work of Scripture Union, while Chris is engaged in teaching preaching, forming church leaders, young adults ministry and developing Bible resources in the local language, Tetun.
Chad and Erika Loftis, serving in Thailand with SIM Australia. Chad and Erika are engaged in offering counselling services and supporting the Thai church wherever possible. They offer marriage counselling in particular, often supporting other missionaries in the region, as well as raising their two children to love and follow Jesus.
At Epiphany our passion is to encourage people to have faith in Jesus, to equip people for discipleship and to facilitate people’s engagement in the mission of the Church.
One way in which we achieve this objective is by running overseas Mission/Aid and Development trips to Papua New Guinea, in which parishioners get to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ in word and deed, through the provision of essential services to those in need.
These mission opportunities encourages parishioners in their own faith development and discipleship.
“What good is it my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one says to them; ‘Go in peace; keep warm and well fed’ but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way faith by itself if not accompanied by actions, is dead.” (James 2:14-17)
