Our Community ‘Single Mum’s Pamper Packs’ and ‘Christmas Hampers’ have been happening for over 8 years now. They have helped to build relationship with local Primary Schools and allow us, the church, to show the love of Jesus in a really practical way to those doing it especially tough.
We deliver hampers to two of our local Primary Schools twice a year, in the lead up to Mother’s Day and Christmas Day. The school then distributes the hampers to those families most in need. In the past these have included families struggling financially and those that have suffered trauma or loss during the year. The single mum hampers delivered just prior to Mother’s day have had a particularly powerful impact. For many young mothers whose children are not of an age to organise a gifts this is an amazing blessing on Mother’s day. We have seen single mum’s join our church due to these hampers.
Our church wants to have a positive impact in our community and everyone really gets behind these projects, it continues to be well supported with plenty of donations coming in every year. Teams get together to package and wrap and we want these gifts to be perfectly timed and have perfectly chosen gifts for each recipient so we pray for Gods mighty blessing over who’s hands these hampers will end up in.
