How we help

As Christians, we believe that a large part of what we do is helping others. We help by donating our time, money and other resources to help those in need. The income that we receive from our congregation, known as tithes, goes towards our running expenses as well as missionary work by various church members. In 2017-18, we’re giving away over $40 000 to help people in need.
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ Matthew 25:35-36

Overseas Missionaries

There are many people around the world who need love, care and the best news there is: the gospel of Jesus Christ. Life Point has several of its members serving overseas in different contexts bringing life and hope to those around them. There’s Shayne Rochfordt in Thailand (pictured here), John Coleman in Costa Rica, Aaron and Ange Bullock in Colombia and Luke Unwin, as well as others who go on short-term trips. These guys get the opportunity to help meet the social, emotional, physical and spiritual needs of people much less fortunate than them all around the world.

Berachah Ministries

The Berachah Children’s Orphanage was founded in 1998 with 7 children when Indian Pastor Kiran Paul acknowledged the heart-breaking need in his community to rescue destitute and street children from moral perversion, brutal exploitation and poverty. Today, the orphanage is home to over 200 children providing 3 meals a day, education and after school tutoring, vaccinations and healthcare. The orphanage also organises foster accommodation with church families and facilitates the childhood vaccinations of the town and surrounding villages. The orphanage is a beacon of hope, a place of new beginnings and a home full of Jesus’ love. Find out more about Berachah Ministries.

SU Chaplaincy

School can be a tough time for so many young people in this country. Bullying, anxiety, abuse, and problems at home combined with the increasing pressure of school and work makes for a volatile mix, and sometimes kids have nowhere to feel safe. We believe having chaplains in schools for pastoral care, support, spiritual guidance and just a listening ear is so vital, and it is even more effective when there is a church family supporting the service in the wings. We give over $12,000 every year across 6 local schools to help ensure chaplains can continue to bring love and grace to students in North Brisbane. Find out more about SU Chaplaincy.
