Compassion Projects

Compassion Projects

Showing God's love and compassion through caring for those in need.

In Matthew 25:31-46 Jesus encourages us to feed those who are hungry and to give clothes to those in need, telling us that whenever we do this we are doing it for Him.

Here are our compassion projects and how you can get involved.

Christmas Hampers

This Christmas we joined the love Christmas campaign to spread one message this Christmas: To let people know we stand with them and for them during this difficult season.

Together we gave out over 200 Christmas hampers. Thank you to Love Your Neighbour and thank you to our church community for donating food and money, as well as wrapping and dropping off the hampers.


Please note: Donations have been paused for January. Please get in touch to find out more about how Growkids is operating during Covid-19 restrictions –
