East Gippsland Fires Update Anglican Diocese of Gippsland Interview with Bishop Richard Treloar and Reverend Cathy Turnbull

This video provides an update of the Anglican Diocese of Gippsland response so far in supporting the parishes in the fire affected regions. It also introduces the Reverend Cathy Turnbull who will coordinate the Diocese’ response due to a generous grant from the Provincial (Victorian) Emergency Relief Fund. The Diocese of Gippsland and the communities of east Gippsland are deeply moved and profoundly grateful for the prayers and generous support offered by so many individuals, parishes, dioceses and other organisations around the Anglican Communion in response to the bushfire crisis, and assures those dealing with fires and the threat of fires in other parts of our state and nation of the continuing prayers of the clergy and people of Gippsland for you also.

We request that donations to support the continuing work in the fire affected parishes directly to our diocesan emergency trust fund by EFT, as follows:
