CityLife Community Care
CityLife Community Care expresses the heart of our church, mobilising volunteers to serve through projects, events, programs and groups to meet needs in our local communities. We walk alongside people going through times of crisis, financial hardship, isolation and distress, offering connection, support and empowerment; making a lasting impact.
Providing meals and food pantries, budgeting, home maintenance, support groups, mentoring, and professional counselling, through staff, volunteers and partners, we can be found serving in homes, schools, nursing homes, local neighbourhoods and from our Care Centre. We see families and individuals strengthened, those that are vulnerable connected into community, and lives changed, empowered towards realising their value and living out their potential.
In 2017 our volunteers and staff provided over 4,500 services, and we’re excited about new premises and new vision. We invite you to join with us to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our local communities.
"I was previously a long term substance abuser and my life was spiralling out of control. Now, no longer relying on drugs, I have found people to connect with for support and I am regaining my confidence and social skills."
"C.O.A.C.H provided me with a mentor who each week, visited me at my home. He is reliable and friendly, someone I can talk to and have a joke with. My Coach supports me in managing my physical health and weight management. He has taught me how to cook healthy meals and has even done the 1,000 steps with me after a full day’s work. I really appreciate his listening ear and supportive, non-judgemental attitude."
"Women Connect helps me strengthen relationships, making me a better person. It’s so good to hear stories from others who have made it through difficult times. It encourages me to know that if they can do, so can I."
