We support a number of Missionaries both financially and by prayer. A prayer meeting is held once a month and everyone is welcome to attend. Find the next meeting here.
Samaritan’s Purse – Operation Christmas Child
Samaritan’s Purse is meeting the physical needs of victims of war, famine, natural disaster, poverty and disease with the aim of demonstrating God’s love and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. Operation Christmas Child is one of their projects where they ask people to fill a shoebox for a child’s Christmas present including:
- something to wear (tshirt, sandals, skirt…)
- something to love (small soft toy)
- something special (bag, sunglasses, stickers…)
- something for school (books, pencils, chalk…)
- something to play with (balls, yoyo, marbles…) and
- something for personal hygiene (soap, toothbrush, comb…).
For many children this will be the only Christmas present they will ever receive. The church collects a different 'something' each month and combines them all to send near the end of the year to Samaritan's Purse. Read the Newsletter to see what is being collected this month,
A Chaplain is a caring and approachable presence in the school, providing a listening ear and a source of comfort and referral for those in a difficult time or in need of a friend.
Robert Hodgson serves the Ambarvale Public School, John Warby Public School and Airds High School community. He works alongside the learning and support team to facilitate the wellbeing of students and their families. He runs approved programs that build children's emotional resilience, personal awareness and social capabilities. Visit Robert's chaplaincy page here.
The School Chaplain’s role is a blessed and unique privilege to serve school communities. Chaplains support students, staff and families through a diverse range of issues. The program continues to grow, and receive wider acceptance in school communities across the nation. At present, 2,200 schools accept the funding for a Chaplain (through the National School Chaplaincy Program) with gratitude. Please continue to pray, and be thankful for these opportunities.
