About

At Christmas we see people frantically running around, financially stressed because of the burden that the time of year puts in them, and physically stressed because of how much has to be accomplished in such a short space of time.

On each Saturday in December, we are creating a space within our community, at Freedom Centre, and giving an opportunity for people to have an oasis where they can physically de-stress. They can have lunch, watch a movie, make some Christmas craft and maybe even have their nails shaped and polished.

We also want people to have a little bit of relief from the financial stress. They’ll be given an opportunity to come to the Great Exchange which will be a free marketplace where people can come and receive a few different gifts that they can have wrapped and ready for Christmas. If you have good quality clothes to spare (washed and ironed please), belts, shoes, handbags and toys please bring them to church on Sundays or Freedom Centre between 9am and 12noon, Monday to Friday.

We want to look after people and maybe just lift a little bit of pressure off the season because we want to communicate the love of God and his great gift to us in Jesus.
