Joining in with Compassion

  
 
We are always accepting your donations of resources and time! Our heart is that every person has the food and fuel they need for home and health, with gifts that will help them feel seen and valued. The stories we hear remind us just how Jesus uses what you give to love our area.
 

HOME

Join us in homes to help people find hope. Work gently alongside someone to help declutter their home so that they can recover or regain routine that restores health. 
 
We serve for just 45 mins to 2hrs as suits. Very easy pace and way. You’ll be part of a pair or a team. You’ll been given good understanding and support from Yvette or Regina in Compassion LVV. 
 

We are currently in need of people to serve. Please email compassion@laganvalleyvineyard.com or chat to our welcome and connection team on Sundays. 

 
 

HOPE

Spring reminds me of the activity of the Holy Spirit alive around us and the warmth of the Fathers love gently thawing our hearts or healing our bodies.  Spring feeling of warmer air to bright flowers and sweet scents is an expression of the life of Jesus and his Kingdom coming here on earth as it is in heaven. 

With this, lots of people around our church family feel inspired at this time of year to bring Gods hope into gardens in community and share the love of Jesus. 

In Spring Gardeners can’t wait to see what comes out of the ground. And as a church family we are talking of taking new ground spiritually and with our whole selves. What does new ground look like in Compassion in our community? What if we explore this with activity together using plants and gardens to enjoy! 

Maybe you’re new to LVV family, want your kids or teens to experience serving with you, or you’d like to join others in something meaningful. Try this with us, plants and gardens allow you the freedom to join in in your own way. 

One Sunday a month we will plant, gift wrap and give away plants into local community. As summer starts we will help people in their gardens together. We may even plant some shared beds in community areas. 

We are currently in need of people to serve. Please email compassion@laganvalleyvineyard.com or chat to our welcome and connection team on Sundays

  • Christians against poverty. 

  •  
  • Poverty just loves to destroy lives. It breaks families apart, isolates people from friends and family, shatters confidence and drives many to think that suicide is the only way out.
  • Local poverty is real, with millions locked in its miserable grip. We’re not prepared to sit back and let it wreak havoc across our area. 
  •  
  • In a just and compassionate society, no one should be trapped in their home, afraid to open the door or answer the phone. No one should wake up wondering where they’ll find the money to feed their children or heat their home. No one should have to be alone, especially when times are tough.That’s why CAP is on a mission. To restore hope for those who are lost and hurting. In partnership with local churches CAP is bringing life-changing freedom and good news to people in desperate need.CAP. Always through the Church. Always hope.

  • As we look to the future, we want Christians Against Poverty’s vision to be alive in LVV family. We want to see an end to poverty in our community. This is the world we passionately seek and we pray God let your kingdom vome here as it is in heaven. It’s a big vision, and it starts with people like you and me deciding to do something. Every change starts with an action that sets off a ripple effect. Together, we will strive to see transformed lives, thriving church family and an end to poverty. The smallest thing can create the biggest reaction. It’s important that people come together to address poverty. If you’re not a talker there are other ways to support through giving time or prayer, or making a financial contribution.  It doesn’t matter what your talent is, your talent is needed. If your talent is knitting a couple of hats, that’s great – you could use that as a fundraiser. Or if your talent is standing up talking to peole, get up and do that. All of these things are the small stones that create the big ripples. We’re in it together. The more people we can get to come together, the louder the voice will be, and that will have the biggest effect. So please hear us, we want you to help us grow CAP because you are part of the LVV family. Chat to Yvette any Sunday or by email yvette@laganvalleyvineyard.com
