Outreach Ministries

Reaching out to our local community and also to our friends  

supporting all areas of Mission across the globe is a foundation of our church community.

Our goal is to be focussed outwardly with prayer, practical support, and giving to each of these causes.

 

Gran’s Van:

We enjoy volunteering with  Gran’s Van distributing food and clothing in our local area, to those in
need.
Click on the Gran’s Van heading to a link for Facebook which details routes and times.
We make  ‘old’ friends and learn a few life lessons about humility and contentment
along the way.
Gran’s Van was formed in  2006 to provide help to the homeless and hidden poor of Devonport

and joined with Action Against Homelessness and Loaves and Fishes Tasmania to launch a new Food
and Laundry van  in April 2022
 The  new ‘Gran’s van’ is in action now,
also the “Shower & laundry trailer ( attached to Gran’s Van)  
 is in  operation, find it  at the Clement Street entrance to the Devonport Oval from 9: 15 am-2:30
pm. Have a cuppa whilst your washing does its cycle and tumbles dry!
