Operation Christmas Child
‘Operation Christmas Child’, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations with gift-filled shoe boxes and the good news of God’s love. Our church contributes to this hands-on project every year between August and October. This is a great family project – a tangible way to teach children that Christmas is about giving, not just receiving. Anyone is welcome to join us by filling a box with gifts of love.

Our two local government secondary colleges and some primary schools are very fortunate to have Chaplains providing pastoral care to students, teachers and families. The Sunbury Chaplaincy Support Group supports the Chaplains. Two of our church members belong to this Support Group. If you would like to support the Chaplains financially – by funding the program or by providing resources for the Chaplains to use with students, please get in touch with us and information will be sent to you.
Share Appeals support vital Uniting Church services to the local community and to international disaster relief. Share raises funds to resource Uniting, which provides instant relief as well as long-term support, ensuring that all people, regardless of race, religion, gender or age, can live a life of dignity and hope.
Our church supports three Share Appeals each year – the Lenten Appeal, the Winter Appeal and the Christmas Bowl Appeal.

Aged Care Ministry
Two of our church members conduct regular Worship Services at two Aged Care Facilities in Sunbury (on a roster basis with other Sunbury churches). This valuable ministry allows residents to take part in worship when they are no longer able to attend Sunday Services in their church building.
