Community Care

COMMUNITY CARE AT ADELAIDE ROAD PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

If you love each other, everyone will know that you are my disciples. (John 13:35, Contemporary English Version)

At ARPC, we all have a variety of practical skills and gifts that we can share with other members, and by doing so, we strengthen our church community and demonstrate our love for one another.

The Community Care initiative (led by ARPC’s congregational committee) seeks to ensure that the needs of all our church community are met,especially at those times when church members experience challenging circumstances.

We try to match the needs of our community with the services that members of our congregation may be able to offer each other.
