St Paul’s has a long tradition of providing opportunities for the congregation to serve and support those who are vulnerable and in need. We especially look for opportunities to support others annually in the lead up to Christmas. This year the tradition continues as the Justice and Mercy Ministry Team is once again offering several different opportunities across local, wider community, and international communities. You may like to choose from one of our Advent Actions or participate in them all, it is entirely up to you.

Whitehorse Winter Shelter

Homelessness is a hidden scourge in our society, and is not just an issue for our government, but it is also for our churches. We have a biblical mandate to love our neighbour. These people may be couch-surfing, sleeping in cars, or out in the open, where they are even more vulnerable. The Whitehorse Winter Shelter program run by Whitehorse Church Care aims to provide shelter for up to about 10 men during the colder months of winter.
