Community

You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

Clothing Cupboard

As a church in the community desiring to meet people’s needs, we provide free clothing to people in need of clothing. This includes warm clothes for the winter, especially for children. We also help people put together an outfit that would be appropriate for someone going for a job interview. Our desire is for people to become self sufficient members of our community.

The clothing cupboard is open to all and particularly caters to families with small children.

Monday Mornings – 9:30 am – 11:30 am. September to June. Closed July and August.

People are welcome to come, have a coffee and look for free clothing. We have volunteers who help find the right clothing, if needed.
Clothing for women, men, children and infants are available. We do not have any household items.
