Current flooding in Gippsland

June 11th, 2021

Gippsland Anglicans join with other church groups and community organisations in reaching out to those impacted by recent extreme weather in the region with pastoral support and material assistance. Damage to property, isolation due to road closures and power outages, disruption to schools and workplaces, threats to livestock and farming infrastructure all compound the recent challenges of further COVID-19 restrictions in many parts of Victoria. The Diocese of Gippsland thanks you for your thoughts and prayers as we face this immediate crisis and its longer term consequences together. Any assistance you can offer will assist our response at the local level through the network of our parishes and ministry centres, and their many connections into the wider community. We will be deeply grateful for donations to support flood relief made directly to our diocesan emergency relief fund by EFT, as follows: Account name: Gippsland Emergency Relief BSB: 705077 Acc: 00040664 (zeros must be included) Ref: ‘Name or Organisation, floods’
