Practical Support

St John's Food Collection

Each month members of our church gather at Cooleman Court to collect public contributions of groceries for St. John’s Care, which is a food collection initiative designed to support those in need. Contact us if you wish to get involved.

St. John’s Care, in partnership with Anglicare, operates a range of programs including emergency relief to assist and support people in the Canberra region.

Their services include:

  • emergency assistance (food, prescription filling, clothing, bus fares, blankets, and some limited financial help)
  • community lunches
  • marriage education
  • grief and loss support program
  • counselling referrals
  • breakfast club at Ainslie Primary School (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday)
  • Christmas presents
  • Christmas day lunch
  • Telstra vouchers for those having trouble with phone bills
  • YouthCare for at-risk youth and young people (12 to 25 years)
