Rest Home Ministry

With seven rest homes and aged care facilities in our parish area, we endeavour to create opportunities for those in aged care to be a part of their wider community and part of the life here at St Paul’s.

St Paul’s LIFEfriends.

We run a programme that visits residents on a regular basis in aged care, that wouldn’t normally get visitors, thereby putting into action the words of Christ…

For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. 36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me..
MATTHEW 25:36-40

Monthly Rest Home Services.

Since the 90’s we have run rest home services in most of the aged care facilities in our area. These are well enjoyed and attended by many residents each month and it is a pleasure to serve so many of those that may not always be able to make it to St Paul’s on a Sunday.

Special Services, Concerts and Sing-a-longs.

Christmas Concert and Songs

Through out the year there are opportunities to involve residents in a special celebration or service that includes music and dramas that bring back memories.

If you would like to be a part of visiting those in aged care or simply want to know more, then simple contact us on 03 352 9571 or email us.
