‘Manna House, a place to belong providing food friendship and hope for the future,’
This has been our vision for nineteen years. Using food and an extended hand of friendship on Jesus behalf, we welcome people from the community to join us for a home cooked meal each week. We do this onsite at Figtree Anglican Church on Tuesday evenings from 5 - 7pm.
All Welcome. This ministry will abide by COVID guidelines.

Each month, small teams go into a number of local nursing homes to minister to the residents through a simple message, Bible reading and singing of familiar hymns. Communion is also served. You don’t need any formal training, just a willingness to give an hour a month to engage with and bless not only the residents but also the nursing staff.
Villa Maria: 2nd Wednesday of the month | 11:00- 11:30am
Hillside at Figtree: 4th Wednesday of the month | 1:30 to 2:30pm
Cordeaux Lodge: 4th Thursday of the month at 2:30pm
Contact Peter Clark for more info about joining a team.
NB: Some nursing homes require volunteers to have a Police Check (they pay for it)
