Share The Love


DONATE

The flame of the Orthodox Apostolic Mission has been lit in Oceania and the fire is growing and spreading. Two thousand years after the resurrection of Christ we bow in reverence to the God of Love Who wants “all men to be saved and come unto the knowledge of the Truth”. (Timothy 2:4)

Building Lives


Providing for the everyday needs & education of children in difficulty

St Tabitha Children’s Home & Safe Home in Fiji was built in 2013-2015 and it was opened together with the consecration of the Church of the Holy Trinity.

We currently have around thirty children in our care, who are all housed in a modern, fit for purpose facility. Our aim is not just to house these children but to provide them with education and with a loving and supportive environment in which they can flourish and grow.

The ongoing costs of running the Children’s Home are around NZD 5,000/month. This sum covers the direct day to day expenses: food, electricity, clothing, schooling. The nuns who care for the children are not being paid, but dedicate themselves to this mission out of love for Christ and for the children.

You can sponsor children from St Tabitha Children’s Home. By setting up a monthly donation of  NZD 170/month you will not only provide for the daily needs of one child but also offer some stability in the lives of all our children.

Building Communities


Providing the means for people to live in a true Christian community

Sometimes the work of Sacred Ministry is as simple as extending a helping and loving hand. The Gospel of Christ prompts us to visit the sick, to comfort those who mourn, to clothe the naked, to reconcile those who are in conflict, to visit those in prison and to work for their release, to shelter the orphan, to support the widow or single mother, to help others to find work… Such tasks are the sweetness of the work of mission.  There is no greater blessing than to serve our beloved brothers and sisters in their need.  Do you feel called to join us? Love is best expressed in person, face to face, hand to hand, arm in arm.  We are always looking for those who feel called to a life of service in Christ.  Could it be Christ is calling you right now?
