Southern Life Care, Albion Park
Southern Life Care is the mission and welfare centre of Southern Illawarra Church and is situated on the main road and in the heart of Albion Park. Southern Life Care is actively supporting its local community through a variety of programs including:
- Tongarra Tukka – this is our free, weekly community meal in Albion Park. Called Tongarra Tukka, it’s a place for everyone to share a conversation over good food. Come along at 5.30pm on Thursdays during school term.
- Court House morning tea – the Albion Park Court House is across the road from Southern Life Care. Once a month a team provides cuppas and conversation for those attending Court and for the Court House staff. This has become a recognizable characteristic of Court at Albion Park.
- Strength program – the STRENGTH program is about equipping adolescent men with the knowledge and skills to discover who they are and the person they want to become.
- Living Creatively – Each Monday morning and night, people from the local community come and explore relationship with one another and God through different forms of art. This innovative approach to spirituality includes guided direction, space to sense what is happening within themselves as well as what God might be saying, creative expression, and sharing with others.
- New Steps – this is a support group for those who are separated, divorced or single again. As people transition through this time that may ask – how can I cope? What do I do? Is this normal? New Steps is a safe place where you can be yourself, be accepted and be heard. People will listen and gently encourage you to grow through your pain. New Steps meets on Monday evenings.
