Practical help and support for our local community needing to develop English Conversation skills.
English Conversation Classes provide a caring, listening environment where people can relax and gain confidence in speaking English. Those who attend enjoy a time of fun, friendship and learning in small groups of two to four or even one to one. Conversation topics have included the environment, shopping, stories and Australian culture as well as many other issues. Participants are encouraged to provide new topics for discussion.
Due to strong demand for English classes, please contact the church office before attending as there may be a waiting list.
These classes occur weekly throughout the year, but please confirm with the church office during school holiday times.
Members of the church community cook meals for families in the local community from Doncaster Primary School who need the support.
Held a couple of times every year, this is simply an open invitation for everyone in the neighbourhood to come together and share a meal. It is great chance to meet your neighbours over some excellent home style cooking. Stay tuned!
Love in the name of Christ (LinC) is ordinary people doing ordinary things and making an extraordinary difference in our community.
We join a network of churches in the city of Manningham, working together with service agencies, to support people in need in our community.
Volunteers assist in such services as transport to medical appointments, visitation, friendship, shopping, home care and maintenance, family support, childcare and more. A food bank, supported by church communities, provides emergency hampers as needed.
Needs are assessed by trained volunteers at the LinC Referral Centre, where referrals are received from health professionals, social workers, day centres, families or directly from clients. Confidentiality is assured.
