“There is a lot of excitement in the community, and people are excited to get on the phone and talk to other people, and see other people coming together and getting support,” the life minister for New South Welsh church, John White, told 7.30.
“You have to know what you’re getting into.”
A new approach to life churchesThe life church community service has also been recognised as a public service by the National Community Service Authority (NSCSA).
In 2018, NALCA was established to support communities to promote and provide support to people with disability, mental health and substance abuse issues, and is part of NSCSA’s ‘life journey’ initiative.NSCA said its new program provides free, open access to all life church services, which include both regular Sunday services and community-based events.
“We know from research that people who are open and connected to their community are better able to live with a disability, and to find their purpose in life,” the NSCA’s regional director, Tony Gee, said.
“It’s a new way of looking at life and it’s a very positive thing to see.”
The NALCAs own Life Church, a private, community-led, life-based, spiritual community service that is open to people aged 12-70.
It currently has about 1,100 people in New South Australia.
Mr White said the community service would continue to offer free, on-site visits to people who wanted to see the life service and meet other people.
“People that are at the end of their rope or at the beginning of their journey can get support and support to come and get help,” he said.’
It’s just a blessing’Mr White said there was a big gap between what people wanted to know about the life services and what they were told about them.
“It’s all very positive and uplifting, but it’s just one blessing,” he explained.
“The service is free, it’s open to anyone, it doesn’t require a guide to the service, and it is a community service.
You can visit it if you need to or if you want to.”
There are people in our community that don’t even have the time to go through the service.
