a Canopy of his beauty, to bless and rebuild this city

Alta 1 Education

We are privileged to partner with a leading organisation in our nation to deliver a vital and effective program for the young people who are disadvantaged, disconnected or at risk in our community.

Alta-1 operates a school that provides an alternative education programme for young people between the ages of 15 and 19 years. The programme enables young people who are not suited to mainstream schooling to complete secondary education. Delivered within a supportive and individually focused context, the Alta-1 programme incorporates a mix of both school and TAFE equivalent components.

See us on Sunday or click here to contact the office to get involved.

The House

The house (not actually a location but a description of the work of the church) is a Program set up to support and care for young people (15-20) who for one reason or another do not have a safe home to go to. Currently the House is set up to support  families with the capacity to accommodate young people with varying degrees of complex needs. Young people are placed with mentor families/support people with the guidance and assessment of the program team, and rent a room for the course of their stay. Over its first 3 years the house has supported a total of 19 young people.

If you think you could be part of changing a young persons life in a big way, chat to us after the service on Sunday or make an appointment to see us during the week.

Food Relief

Community care has the ability to assist people requiring food in emergency situations on a limited availability basis. Those assisting in the program can also provide information and referrals for other support.As the capacity of community care grows, so too will the ability of this program to provide for more people. 

You can get on board by contributing with non-perishable items including toiletries or cleaning supplies and volunteering time to make and deliver hampers. Check with our Community Care team by emailing here to see where you can get involved.


If you need or know someone who is in need of assistance we would love to help if we can. Currently referrals can be taken any time Tuesday to Friday by calling the office on 93010177. 

HeartWorks

Some times we all just need someone to help. We believe community is about being there for others when the need arises. Heartworks is a network of helpers that are ready to assist where ever and whenever they can. If you know of someone who needs a hand up, maybe a meal or 3 cooked, maybe a repair, or a clean up or a maintenance task then Heartworks could be the answer. Heartworks exists to help when life, grief, financial pressure, emergencies and/or hard times hit, so you know you are not alone.


Can you Contribute? If you can cook, clean or care, maybe you have some trade skills or special ability that might be needed? Consider having your name and details added to the Heartworks database to be called on from time to time to assist.

Email the team here.

This is where community begins.

COmmunity partnerships and projects

We believe that as the church, we can be stronger together, and as such we love to work with other churches, agencies and organisations to see our community change for the better. One example of this is the hosting of the Joondalup Christmas Lunch; funded and supported by various local government, churches and local businesses; the lunch held in the park each Christmas offers a chance to connect and enjoy Christmas Day for those otherwise disadvantaged or disconnected. As volunteers we have the privilege of being a part of celebrating Christmas and offering connection to some of our cities most vulnerable individuals.

Opportunities exist to support other community initiatives and we currently participate in local networks and action groups to facilitate social change in the city of Joondalup.
