This year, we are celebrating our 50th birthday! Anglican Financial Care was established on 26th April 1972 and was then known as The New Zealand Anglican Church Pension Board. From mortgages for members, to pensions and welfare assistance for Anglican clergy, and the Christian KiwiSaver Scheme, we are blessed to be making a difference for our members for 50 years.
