At Shore we partner with several Christian organisations to serve those in our local communities and beyond.
Shore Community Trust is connecting people who need help, with people who can provide hope through bringing volunteers and communities together. We are striving to be a resource for authentic service in and to the surrounding community, by working to strengthen the lives of individuals and families through education, counselling and support services.
Our Relief Fund is for anyone with a financial need. Often we know of people who are doing it tough. Maybe someone you know has lost a job, their family is in crisis, they have a family member in hospital or they’ve had an emergency come up. Whatever the reason we want to help!
