In communities across Queensland, individuals and families are facing serious
issues such as homelessness, mental illness, poverty, domestic violence, family
breakdown and unemployment. Those experiencing these challenges
can often feel alone and afraid.
To help address this heartbreaking situation, Churches of
Christ in Queensland’s community chaplains are working with
our care services to reach out to people in need and connect
them with their local community. Our dedicated chaplains
invest in people’s lives, demonstrate unconditional love, are
available to help when people are in desperate need and give
guidance to those who are struggling with life’s pressures.
The chaplains’ relationships with local churches, business and
support services means they can help with a range of practical
challenges from sourcing crisis accommodation to helping
with the basic necessities of life. Most importantly the people
they support feel respected, valued and loved.
They truly live our mission of bringing the light of Christ
