St George’s has a long commitment to the Australian Board of Mission, South Australia. Some members of our congregation have served in Papua New Guinea and we are proud of these links. As well, members have taken part in the ABM visits to Dogura. We support the ABM Auxiliary and two members of the congregation are on its board. The parish has also been a place for Anglicans from the Solomons when studying in Adelaide.
