To share a practical expression of God’s love we are once again preparing hampers to be given to people in our local community. God has continued to burden our hearts with a vision for a wider sharing of this gift and to once again include a hamper for each household at the Aspley Acres Caravan Park along with those nominated within our Bridgey Community, Bridgecare, local chaplaincy, dhiiyaan, and refugee communities… This means we will be creating 750 hampers to bless others.
A huge task, but also a huge opportunity! We are excited because this is something we can all be a part of, and for a small investment, pass on incredible blessing!
So how can you be involved? Check out below…
