Church-sponsored social work


Testimonials – The New England Company funding in action

The Anglican Church of Canada and Indigenous Anglicans

In the midst of a rapidly transforming relationship between the Anglican Church of Canada and Indigenous Anglicans, the New England Company continues to offer resources for mission and ministry projects that nurture a vision for healing and self-determination. We are encouraged by the regular visits of trustees that foster deeper understanding of current issues and needs and nurture relationships directly with Indigenous Anglicans and dioceses.
