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 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."

 

CityLife World Impact


Bhogapuram School


Citylife world impact has a goal to reach out and positively impact more than 800 communities around the world by 2020. As part of this, there are a number of Tax-deductible community development projects that citylife supports through our kingdom investment fund. These projects aim to bless individuals, families and households living in marginalised communities in places like india and africa. For example, since 2009 we have funded highly successful adult literacy programs in impoverished rural villages. The literacy project is run by our field partner in india, divakar. This program has impacted more than 220 villages and dramatically changed the lives of more than 20,000 people forever.

Now we’re embarking on a new project that has the potential to impact even more lives. Through god’s miraculous provision, our field partner divakar was able to purchase a 3 acre block of land in a strategic and high growth location north of visakhapatnam—a major city and industrial centre on the east coast of india. This land is large enough for him to first build a primary and secondary school, and then a bible college, student accommodation, chapel and medical centre. Not only will this provide a new base for his rapidly growing ministry, it will also allow him to bless the existing local community and new families moving into this quickly developing area.

The first stage of this project involves the construction of bhogapuram school. The school will provide both primary and secondary level education. It will offer high quality, internationally recognised education that will be accessible to poorer families. The school is a proactive response to the felt needs of the local community and it will be a great blessing to them for generations to come. Its influence will be measured in the tens of thousands of lives it impacts. Cost to complete the school construction is aud $400,000. Your contributions to this project matter, with your help we can create a brighter future for the children and families of bhogapuram, india.

Imagine a community that offers the opportunity for individuals to grow in all facets of life, whether it is in academics, creative arts, sports or leadership. A community in which staff, students and families bond over shared faith and journey through life’s peaks and valleys together. A community that encourages excellence and gives one the tools to unlock their potential.

Waverley Christian College, Narre Warren South is the community that I feel privileged to be a part of and privileged to lead.

I am grateful to have the honour of representing this vibrant community as one of the College Captains for 2018. I started at the College in 2013 and it has been a great pleasure of mine to watch the school develop into what it is today, an emblem of faith and a beacon of hope within our community.
