Meals of Hope also provides hope in the midst of cancer, with our teams delivering nutritious meals and grocery hampers for the families of those currently undergoing cancer treatment in the Newcastle, Maitland and Central Coast areas.

Gifts of Hope

Every year in October and November, we invite our church in all our campus locations to donate gifts towards our annual Christmas appeal, Gifts of Hope. Along with some beautiful gourmet hampers, these gifts are wrapped and delivered to bless families in our community, who have had a particularly tough year, and to bring hope & joy in the season of Christmas.
