Community

We believe that God has called us not merely to have church services but to love our community! Every service and almost every ministry is designed to be a welcoming place for your friends, work colleagues and family. These are some of the things we are involved in:

HOPE

HOPE stands for Helping Out People Everywhere, and that’s exactly what we aim to do…help people. HOPE was established in 1992 to assist those that are living in crisis in our community. We provide relief for poverty and distress in very tangible ways – providing food, clothing, financial assistance and life counselling for people who are disadvantaged or struggling. HOPE is lead by Yvonne Mulder and her great team and works hand in hand with many other agencies to change people’s lives for the better. We provide, food parcels, financial assistance, low cost clothing and household goods, free showers, blankets and sleeping bags and a monthly barbecue. Our opening hours are Tuesday and Friday 1.00 p.m. to 4.00 p.m. at the City campus. Or you can call us on 9427 5013 with any queries or to be involved.

Special Services

Every service at metro is an opportunity to invite your friends and family along – we like people! Everyone is welcome. There are a few services each year though that are even more geared toward guests. Celebrate Women Day is what the rest of Australia calls “Mothers’ Day”, but here at Metro we want to celebrate every woman, regardless of whether or not they are a mum. There’s special treats, gifts and music to celebrate the brilliant women that we know. Honour Men Day is a great day for all the men in our lives! First Sunday of September (yep, it’s Fathers’ Day!) and again, gifts, fun and food for all the men (well, food for everyone actually!) Of course, there’s Easter Services and special Christmas Services which are also great events each year for all the church and our friends and family to enjoy.

Red Frogs

Named after a popular Australian sweet, Red Frogs is a support program for young people from the ages of 15 – 25.This humble confectionary item is a point of connection between over 200,000 Young Adults around the nation and our collective of over 2,500 volunteers. Whether it’s at leavers week, music festivals or university campuses, we recognize that the culture of young people is dominated by alcohol and other substances that can lead to dangerous and life altering behaviours. We make it our mission to provide a positive peer presence in alcohol-fuelled environments where young people gather, educate young people on safe partying behaviours, and/or diversionary activities that engage young people in these environments. As a result of being practical, available and consistent in serving, we are placed in a position of trust with young people, thereby enabling us to disciple them through some of the most challenging times of their lives. We take every opportunity to engage in acts of generosity that foster relationship and display genuine care and concern for the lives of others.
