As an outward flow of our vision and mission, each year we give to tax-deductible projects that make an impact in our community and beyond.

Your generous giving enables the practical ways in which we reach out through these projects, which in turn brings the many inspiring stories of transformation that we see. The funds received through June constitute the majority of income received for the year in this area. Please consider how you can contribute to partner with us in these projects as we participate in God’s mission to see lives transformed.

CityLife Community Care

CityLife Community Care is the response of our church to the growing needs of the people in our neighbourhood.
We run community meals, groups, projects and events to connect with and serve the community. For those struggling financially, we provide practical support, such as food, material and financial assistance. We walk alongside those going through difficult times, offering one-to-one mentoring through our COACH, Kids Hope and Mummy&Me programs, empowering them with life skills, as well as supporting individuals with parenting classes, single mums groups, budgeting, resume writing and energy advocacy. Our counselling services help individuals, couples and families faced with life challenges such as mental health, addiction, relationship and parenting issues.

Despite the constraints brought about by COVID-19, we were able to adapt many of our programs; and together with our team of volunteers, we provided close to 4826 services to over 1031 individuals and families. COVID ‘sickness’ may not be rampant in our country, but the silent effects of it; loss of jobs and businesses, family violence and breakdown, mortgage stress and anxiety are very real to the people that we support.

This year, with the pandemic continuing, we are experiencing a daily increased demand for all our services. Through your generous support and partnership, we will be able to continue to reach out to people in need, blessing them with love, hope and tangible help, empowering people to thrive.

“I was grief stricken with the loss of my partner and lost my business when COVID hit. I don’t know where I’d be without the care and support of CLCC. The comprehensive care they’ve provided including counselling to give me confidence to seek employment and the regular food support has meant a lot to me. They also helped me negotiate a better plan for my utilities and provided assistance with applying for government grants. While I still have my struggles, I feel like I am making good progress towards a better future.

“I was separated from my wife and daughter who was stuck in India because of COVID. My situation was quite dire. I was finding it hard to afford basic living expenses as I tried to get back on top financially and save enough to get my family home as well. The mental strain was immense. CLCC was the only agency willing to support me regularly. They helped with financial counselling for assistance with debts and basic needs like food and clothing. I so appreciated the mental health support through the COACH program as I battled discouragement, unemployment, and separation from my family. They even went the extra mile to help me with my attempts to get my family home!”

Waverley Christian College

Waverley Christian College is a school community where young people are challenged to develop an uncompromising faith in Jesus Christ and learn to grow in love for God and others.
The aim of the College is to provide students with the opportunity to participate in a vibrant learning environment, grow in knowledge and wisdom, and develop God-given gifts and abilities. The College has an enrolment of over 2,000 students across campuses at Wantirna South and Narre Warren South. A significant capital development program is required to meet the demands of the growing school community.

Our campus at Narre Warren South is now in its tenth year of operation, and has over 900 students enrolled from Prep to Year 12. We continue to be encouraged by the growth of our new campus and the opportunities it is providing to extend Christian Education in one of Australia’s most rapidly developing municipalities. In 2020, construction of a Maintenance facility and Music Tuition Hub was completed. We are currently awaiting planning approval for the installation of traffic signals at the intersection of Narre Warren – Cranbourne Road and Lansell Close, and the completion of the final stage of the car park.

At our Wantirna South campus, a number of smaller projects took place in late 2020/early 2021. These included renovations to the ICT Operations Hub, Uniform Shop, and Secondary Learning Support Hub and; an extension to the gymnasium.

Construction of the three-storey North Wing project commenced early in 2021. The new building provides, at ground level, a new Reception and Admissions area and a new Food Studies/Café precinct; a second level containing eight new Primary classrooms and associated breakout spaces and; a third level consisting of Administration and Staff services. The total project cost for the North Wing is just over $11 million.

Our College Captains write:

"Throughout history, many Christians have had significant roles in impacting society. Within Waverley Christian College, our four Houses reflect some of these people - William Tyndale, Charles Spurgeon, Charles Finney and John Wycliffe – who not only knew the Word of God but demonstrated it in their everyday life.

In the present day, the College community remains one that encourages the development of enduring Christian faith. However, the opportunities and challenges present in this generation, like social media, can make it difficult to ground our opinions in the Word of God. As a result, it is more important than ever to have an active faith.

We believe it is essential, as leaders, that we provide a safe space for the next generation to ask questions that help their opinions to grow from a Christ-like outlook. By doing so, we are able to truly be the hands and feet of Jesus in our day-to-day lives. We want to develop a school culture which inspires students to grow in their faith and become kind and compassionate young people who can alter the path of history.”

World Impact

CityLife World Impact has a goal to reach out and positively impact more than 800 new communities around the world by 2021. As part of this goal, the Kingdom Investment Fund helps to sustain the ongoing operation of various overseas projects.
In collaboration with our South Asia field partners, we have seen significant community development work, including literacy schools and building community centres in rural communities.

The investment in a child’s education can be the most significant thing we can do for them because it gives them choices in life that they would otherwise not have. Many of the schools in these communities do not have a building to meet in. In the scorching 48°C summers, the children are sitting out in the heat and in the monsoon season, they are getting rained on. The great advantage of having school buildings is that they are not only used for education during the week but they become a resource and blessing for the whole community for things such as vocational training for adults and other community meetings.

During COVID-19, our field partners have been focused on aid and relief efforts to help individuals and families affected by the lockdowns. While COVID-19 has affected everybody in the world, the poor are affected in a disproportionate way simply because they do not have the means to hoard resources, plan for lockdown or draw upon savings.

Many live in crowded slum communities where it is impossible to social distance, while others live from hand to mouth, so the loss of their employment has had a devastating impact.

Your contribution to the Kingdom Investment Fund will enable our field partners continue their work in providing food relief, medical kits and quality education for those living in marginalised communities, meeting immediate needs and also investing into their future.
