Again many thanks”

North Lake Macquarie Citizens Serving their city

Posted by:

“The combined churches of the North Lake Macquarie had a great time serving the Warners Bay High School painting tables, moving mulch, cleaning footpaths and weeding the gardens. There were about 30 people from the various churches serving Warners Bay High School. The Principal of the School also got involved which was terrific. What a privilege to serve with others to help serve the School in such a practical way”

We successfully completed our project at Kotara Park on 18 October and had fun doing it.

Macquarie Life Church’s 2014 CityServe Experience

Posted by:

Macquarie Life Church undertook 2 CityServe projects this year, Ulinga Oval at Cardiff South and Neegulbah Park at Macquarie Hills. We had about 30 volunteers, across the 2 projects, who were involved in gardening, painting and general tidying up of the parks. Our volunteers got ‘stuck in’ to the tasks and enthusiastically worked to complete the projects on the day.
As a church it was great to be involved in projects that are right in the ‘backyard’ of our church. ...

What does CityServe mean to me?

Posted by:

I love Newcastle.

Ever since I moved here at the age of two, Newcastle has and always will be my hometown. There’s something about the coffee, Darby Street, the culture and warmth about Newcastle that you don’t quite see anywhere else.

We have Silverchair . We have The Knights. We have the NBN. We have all kinds ...
