Fulfilling the Great Commission by raising Christ-centred disciples to plant vibrant, biblical churches in our cities and countries all over the world

SALT & LIGHT FOOD RELIEF PROGRAM

Since the beginning of March 2020, many households in Brisbane have been greatly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Due to the lockdown restrictions, there has been a significant increase in unemployment and people were forced to live on savings before the government support schemes were made available. Many have found relief in the government support payments; however, there are still groups of vulnerable people who have not received support.
Hands of Hope, the community arm of Hope Church Brisbane, has been busy responding to the urgent needs of the community by providing food to vulnerable groups since April. Through the generosity of church members and the servanthood spirit of the volunteers, more than 350 food parcels were given out to struggling families in the local community. We also partnered with Oz Harvest to supply fresh groceries for these families to put meals on the table.
Through these volatile and uncertain times, the mission of Hands of Hope remains the same. In fact, a pandemic does not change our mission; it magnifies it. Therefore, we will continue to be the salt and light, to bring hope to the hopeless just as Jesus has called us to.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)
