Love for Ukraine
The invasion of Ukraine is costing precious lives and creating a humanitarian crisis as people flee to safety. Over a million people, displaced from their homes, are seeking refuge in neighbouring countries. Many have lost friends, loved ones, and property; struggle to meet their basic needs, and face an uncertain future. United Churches and Mission & Service partners are responding to the rapidly unfolding crisis. Love your family and neighbours, and help any in need!
Why should people give to our church?
We are an inclusive Christian community inspiring spiritual growth through meaningful outreach and dynamic worship. We are called to make a difference by engaging and empowering the community.
You are invited to grow your faith, deepen spiritual practises, and find empowerment through teamwork, all of which works to make significant change in our whole community. Join us as we learn together how to be generous with our thoughts, actions, and financial resources through faith!
