Ministry to Shawlands Caravan Park:
This ministry commenced with monthly BBQ’s where church members and the residents of the park enjoy food, conversation and company together.
Relationship with the residents and the management has developed to the point where we have been able to purchase a purpose-built van which now serves as a Community Centre, in their park.
Other Support Agencies have joined with us, in using the ‘Church Van’ to bring other much needed support services to the residents. These include Legal Aid, Mental Health, South Eastern Advocacy Services, and Mobile Play Spot for the toddlers.
Trust with the residents and management continues to grow to the point where our church is seen as the first “port of call” when emergency situations arise. The church also has a weekly bread ministry and assists with basic household items when new residents come.
Our annual Christmas celebration is a highlight that is eagerly anticipated by all residents. We provide Christmas dinner and gifts for over 100 people, as well as having kids activities, fun, Santa, Carol singing, and share the good news of Jesus birth.
Funding for this ministry is provided solely by proceeds from the Church’s Op Shop.
God continues to shower His blessing on this ministry with continuing open doors for the Good News to be shared with people through word and action.
