Vision & Details

We are so grateful to live in a region of Australia that welcomes in refugees from all around the globe. We want to intentional pursue relationship with refugees in our city by providing resources, friendship and support as they establish their life in Australia.

“He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing around you, giving them food and clothing.” Deuteronomy 10:18. We see God’s heart of mercy and justice all throughout the Bible, and we want to be a people who respond and follow in His footsteps. People from many different nations fleeing persecution and have found their home in Toowoomba, giving us the incredible opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus right here in our neighbourhood. Whether that is through practically teaching English or building friendships and relationships, we want to reflect God’s heart of mercy and create a space for refugees to be known, seen and valued.
