Community TeamS

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT DAYS

This team is involved in serving our community at different times throughout the year.  Sign up on a casual basis.  There are 5 days of the year where we partner with the community to make a difference in our city – they include: Clean Up Australia Day, Lake Macquarie Running Festival, Hunter Homeless Connect, City Serve and the Seniors Christmas Concert.

SENIORS CONNECT CAFÉ

Support our local elderly and help them thrive. We believe grey hair is a crown of splendour. Build relationships with guests from our local nursing homes as they attend a morning tea once a month and enjoy singing, games and connection.

OUR BACKYARD

Our people volunteer at “Our Backyard” every week to provide emergency support to people sleeping in their cars, waiting to access housing options.

PLAYGROUP

This team loves to connect with and serve young families in our local community.  It could include set up, pack up, games, singing and craft activities. It is a thriving ministry in our church that connects church to community.

MENTORING

This team shares their knowledge and life experience as they partner with younger community members, helping them to develop practical life skills.

SHINE & STRENGTH

This team desires to create a safe, encouraging environment where young people can follow a program and learn about respect, value, esteem and resilience. They love to see the difference it makes in lives and are available during school terms and school hours

SCRIPTURE

This team creates an atmosphere where children are consistently exposed to the love of Jesus through the mediums of storytelling, skits, singing, multimedia, games and activities.  This team is passionate about reaching the next generation for Christ.

MISSIONS TRIPS

Our missions team at Macquarie goes to India (Haynes Children’s Home) and Sri Lanka (ministry with Stephen Joseph) once a year.
