LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR CAMPAIGN
Each Easter through the generosity of our church, the Kilo of Kindness campaign has been able to provide much needed food relief to our partners and communities. As a part of our church’s mission to create significant and sustainable social impact, we are excited to launch our new Easter campaign, Love Thy Neighbour.
Love Thy Neighbour seeks to help restore dignity and hope to the hurting and vulnerable in our communities.
This year, Love Thy Neighbour is focusing on providing practical ways that we as a church can support our community in the areas of Domestic and Family Violence and/or homelessness.
Domestic and Family Violence continues to be a largely silent and increasing problem and is a leading cause of homelessness in Australia. Coupled with the increased costs of living and other social issues, every night over 116,000 Australians are experiencing homelessness.
There are 3 ways you can take part: GIVE, CONNECT & PRAY.
All giving to Love Thy Neighbour goes toward providing essentials packs with warm clothing, hygiene products, household and essential food items to those affected.
Through volunteering, educating ourselves, meeting our neighbours, checking in on those that live alone and creating a safe community.
If you or someone you know is in immediate danger call 000 or if you are in need of immediate support contact 1800Respect on 1800 737 732.
There are many support services available if you need help.
There are also resources available on awareness, recognition, how to respond, and where to get help if someone you know needs assistance.
