Anglicans For Life
Anglicans For Life’s mission is to celebrate, honor, and protect life from conception to natural death because we believe that it is a sacred gift given to us by God. Our local chapter does this through education and supporting our local pregnancy center.
One of our most popular ministries is the making of hundreds of bag lunches every 2nd and 4th Saturday in the Parish Life Kitchen. These are prayed over and sent to Emmanuel Methodist for distribution.
Bicycles (Christmas Season)
Donated bicycles are collected from the community and refurbished and then given to underprivileged children at Christmas time. This is currently sponsored by the Evening Optimist Club, but you are invited to participate with our church family in this ministry.

Cursillo in Christianity
Make a friend, be a friend, bring a friend to Christ. This short course in Christianity is designed to build up leaders within the church. Attendees travel for a weekend retreat, joining other Anglicans for singing, worship, listening, and discussion. After attending, monthly Ultreyas with the local Cursillo community takes place in member homes. Your sponsor will assist in placing you in a small weekly reunion (accountability) group to strengthen your faith.

A Ropeholder is one who holds the ropes of support as others venture out to do the Lord’s work. At Holy Comforter, you can become a Ropeholder by providing a monthly pledge which is divided among our missionaries in the field to help support their Kingdom work.
Sumter children cannot attend school without shoes. Some children are attending school in shoes that are too large, too small, or composed of duct tape and cardboard. Our area school nurses call Holy Comforter to notify us; this ministry then arranges for the child/children to visit a local store and be fitted for a pair of quality shoes.
