Our work takes many forms.
With the aim of the whole Church engaged in Mission, the Anglican Church Southern Queensland (ACSQ) serves the community through its five commissions: the Anglican Schools Commission, Community Services Commission, Financial and Diocesan Services Commission, Ministry Education Commission and the Parish and Other Mission Agencies Commission.
Anglican Schools Commission
The purpose of the Anglican Schools Commission is to provide strategic direction and policy development to, and monitoring of, Anglican schools of the ACSQ.
Community Services Commission
The Community Services Commission oversees the governance and strategy of Anglicare Southern Queensland.
Financial and Diocesan Services Commission
The Financial and Diocesan Services Commission works with the General Managers Office with a focus on the governance requirements for the Diocese as a whole and the operational support of individual commissions other than the Community Services Commission.
Ministry Education Commission
The Ministry Education consists of a suite of services including theological education; ordination; formation; a spiritual directors’ formation program; lay education; children’s, youth and families ministry; library services; and the ministry of the Household of Deacons. This suite of services is branded under the St Francis’ Theological College banner.
Parish and Other Mission Agencies Commission
The purpose of the Parish and Other Mission Agencies Commission is to facilitate strategic planning and policy development in parishes and other mission agencies, including ministry in hospitals, prisons, police services and tertiary institutions.
