Be cared and prayed for

Our Elders and Pastor oversees and cares for our members and visitors. In addition, retired Elders and gifted pastoral carers and helpers help our Elders in this important area. Our Pastoral Care Team also prays for member praise points and needs that are raised with them.

Be cared for practically

Sharing Jesus’ love in word and deed, our Diaconal Team practically cares for those in and outside our church family by writing cards, visiting, sending flowers, providing meals and gift vouchers, coordinating gift catalogue fundraisers, supporting local charities like Cornerstone and Transit Outreach and sets up and serves Lord Supper elements.

Join a Bible study

Members meet in small communities through the week to read and grow in their faith from God’s word, pray for one another, share joys and burdens with each other and encourage each other.

Serve at Shawlands outreach

Church volunteers offer support and a meal each week at Shawlands Caravan Park, 65 South Gippsland Highway, Dandenong South on Tuesdays from 4.00 to 5.30 pm. Food vouchers are made available for emergencies too.

We have two on-site caravans. One is for hospitality, it has a small kitchen, library books and kids toys. The other van is a mini op-shop, offering a wide variety of household goods, emergency packs, toasters, kettles, bedding, heaters, fans etc. All merchandise is available at very low prices, however if there is a real need and no money to pay for goods, it is for free, no questions asked.

After “being in the park” for over 15 years we have met a lot of people, each in different circumstances and we have helped many of them, also often by offering a listening ear.

Our goal is to make a difference, since we understand that life has its challenges and can be awfully tough at times. Should you have any suggestions as to how we could improve our services and/or ideas, please don’t hesitate to talk to us.

We strive to show that we care and wherever possible will lend a hand. We are in close partnership with park management and for any assistance the office at the front of the park is your first port of call
