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.
With your help, CLCC continues to be a vital ministry of the church, reaching out to people experiencing disadvantage in our local community, impacting, and changing lives on a daily basis. Our vision is to responsibly respond to the needs and concerns of those individuals and families who are going through tough times. Our programs provide an integrated approach to meeting the needs of people who come for assistance, recognising that everyone is created in the image of a wonderful God who cares for us all completely.

Our priority is to establish a welcoming, safe environment in which people can participate by providing practical life-giving help, including fresh healthy food, financial assistance, support with budgeting and debt reduction. We also create friendly supportive spaces where people feel connected, can find community, ask questions, learn new skills, and find hope and healing. We want every person to experience a sense of value and belonging.
As the cost of living, and interest rates continue to rise, families can no longer afford to pay their rent and mortgages. Many households struggle to put food on the table, pay for petrol, medication, energy, and other bills. Stress, anxiety, and uncertainty has become an everyday part of many lives. Along with these pressures, mental health concerns, family violence, isolation, and relationship breakdown, are regular concerns.

At CLCC we have a team of 9 Counsellors, Psychologists and Allied health professionals. Where necessary we subsidise counselling, so that no one misses out on being able to access the help they need. We regularly engage Men, women, children, youth, couples, and families faced with life challenges such as relationship concerns, mental health, grief, loss, addiction, and parenting issues.

It is heart-warming to know that last year, your tax deductable giving helped provide: 1143 counselling sessions, 1186 mentoring sessions, 2377 welfare appointments, 1478 food parcels, over $2800 in vital medicines, $16,000 in material assistance such as blankets, clothes etc. 724 connections in groups and multiple referrals to homeless and Family violence organisations and specialist services. Staff and our wonderful volunteers also hosted families for two very special events, celebrating Easter and Christmas.

We simply want to say THANK YOU, your generosity, helps people find hope and a way forward in very challenging times.

World Impact

CityLife World Impact has a goal to reach out and positively impact more than 500 new communities around the world by 2025. 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 in stopping sex trafficking.

For over 2,000 years, thousands of girls have been illegally forced into ritual sex slavery in this region. Girls are dedicated to the goddess in a marriage-like ceremony.

They are dedicated and ‘initiated’ without their consent. After reaching puberty she becomes the property of the village and can be used by any man, anywhere, anytime; and is trapped in a life of sexual servitude. It is estimated that there are over 100,000 women who are trapped in this slavery. Sexually transmitted diseases, HIV/AIDS and ill-health are rife, mental health issues and depression are rampant and dignity is non-existent. They are stigmatised and abused physically, sexually, emotionally, and financially. Most are illiterate, struggle with substance abuse and live in extreme poverty.
Our team have identified that the practice is rampant in around 3,000 villages in Southern India. Our staff connect with several of these women, providing healthcare, vocational training and empowering them to leave the practice.

We are currently active in 240 villages, where we are seeing dedications decrease, and the women discovering dignity and hope,

They receive tailoring training, small business grants and other means of providing for their families.

Many of the women who were freed from the practice, through the efforts of our Field Partners, return to the villages and become our eyes and ears, connecting our team with at-risk girls; and helping other women to leave the practice. Your contribution to the Kingdom Investment Fund will enable our field partners continue their work in providing freedom to hundreds of women who are trapped in the cycle of sexual exploitation.

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 2,300 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 twelfth year of operation and has over 1000 students enrolled from Prep to Year 12. We continue to be encouraged by the growth of our second campus and the opportunities it is providing to extend Christian Education in one of Australia’s most rapidly developing municipalities. In the later part of 2022, construction of the signalized intersection at Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road and Lansell Close commenced, with works expected to be completed in the near future.
Construction of the Junior Secondary building at Narre Warren South commenced in early 2023. The two-storey building will provide general learning areas for students Years 7 to 9, along with breakout spaces, specialist music classrooms, learning support classrooms, and staff spaces. It is anticipated that the project will cost around $11 million.

Unfortunately, the builder went into voluntary administration early in the project, delaying the project by a couple of months. A new builder has now been engaged and the project is anticipated to be completed early in Term 2, 2024.

The three-storey North Wing project at our Wantirna South campus was completed in October 2022. The new building provides, at ground level, a Reception and Admissions area and a 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 areas. Staff and students are delighted with the new building and the enhanced opportunities it provides.

Now that the North Wing project has been completed, construction of the South Wing building has commenced. The single storey Secondary Wing has been demolished to make way for the new two-storey South Wing which will provide Secondary classrooms, senior student study areas, social spaces, links to the library and oval, and staff spaces. It is anticipated that the total cost for this project will be around $13 million. At the time of writing, in ground services have been completed and the ground floor slab and columns have been poured.
Our College Captains Write
"In 2023, we are excited to play our part in facilitating God’s plans for our College (Jeremiah 29:11).

We envisage a loving, genuine, non-judgmental Christian community that is unified through our Father, with a focus on an outward expression of Christ’s love for us towards each other.

Amidst new challenges, we long to see students turn to God for renewed strength and direction setting (Isaiah 40:31, Ephesians 6:10).

Through encouraging and providing consistent opportunities for acts of service, we trust that students will learn more about their own hearts, others, and God (1 Timothy 6:17-19)

In committing our own hearts and minds to walk in step with the Spirit (John 13:14-16, Galatians 5:16-17) and fulfilling the academic and spiritual ethos, we hope students are encouraged to take their next steps in their respective walk with God, and become faithful disciples of Jesus, as we are all called to be (John 8:12,31-32)."

College Captains - Wantirna South Campus

"In 2023, we have been given God's gift of student leadership. As Captains, we wish to impart to our peers an enduring sense of Christian community and fellowship. Our goal is to provide a space for our peers to grow in their faith and learn how to apply their God given abilities and talents in their day-to-day life within the School. We wish to create a deeper sense of connection within the relationships upheld in the WCC community."
