St Jude’s is engaged and active in the local community. Some of the outreach ministries we currently have running include:
A morning tea offered each Friday for those who need a little company and good food.
The club is offered each Tuesday morning at Brighton Primary School. Volunteers from St Jude’s and other local churches cater for up to 80 children in need of breakfast before school. Food is donated by local service clubs.
Pastoral Care in the community
This outreach offers Christian care to the housebound, lonely and isolated. Associated with these is a monthly seminar that looks at issues surrounding ‘positive ageing’.
Community Visitors Scheme
This outreach is a Commonwealth Government scheme that engages St Jude’s volunteers in visiting residents of local Aged Care facilities.
The group meets weekly for craft and conversation.
This group meets once a month a group of able seniors care for the grounds of St Jude’s. This activity promotes exercise and conversation as we keep the church grounds in good order.
St Jude’s is also a partner with Anglicare:
Refugee housing – currently a St Jude’s Church house is being let to Anglicare for refugee housing.
