During the school holidays we provide a free healthy lunch and fun activities to children and their families who struggle to eat well during the school holidays due to low income. Chomp is a great opportunity during the holiday to enjoy having a meal together as well as to socialise with other children and families.

Our team seeks to serve and bring God’s love to the community around us. We work on the planning and strategy for mission and outreach, supporting our church to be a community that welcomes all, is compassionate to those in any kind of need, and is able to share God’s message of love with others.
