Latest news and information
The Request-for-Proposals process that AFC began in 2014 had a very successful inaugural year. 5 grants of $10,000 were awarded to training projects for youth in mission, ministry and evangelism. Now we are very excited to announce the 2015 RFP theme. Responding to one of the Marks of Mission, this year’s focus is new community service or outreach projects that involve interfaith collaboration.
For more information and to submit a proposal, please visit our RFP 2015 page.
PrayerWorks Common is a joint community ministry of St. Faith Anglican Church and St. Stephen the Martyr in Edmonton, AB. During the winter months they serve approximately 250 meals per week to handicapped people, the working poor and those in inadequate housing. An AFC grant allowed them to replace two stoves in their kitchen in order to meet the increased usage need and adequately serve the spiritual, physical and social needs of the community.
DID YOU KNOW that in 1956 General Synod established a Foundation to receive donations for the purpose of disbursing financial assistance across the country. It was also agreed that every parish give a $50 donation every year to support their Foundation.
Annual donations from every parish make it possible for AFC to give grants to parishes and people across Canada. Count your parish in with $50 in 2015. Speak to your church wardens to donate.
AFC has contributed to the creation of a Braille version of the Common Praise hymnbook, initiated by a parishioner with limited vision at St. John's Anglican Church, South March, Kanata, ON. The transcription will encompass seven volumes and will be available for purchase on demand through Tactile Vision Graphics in Ottawa, ON. AFC is proud to be a part of bringing this resource to those in need across Canada.
