Many times the Bible speaks of service to others as a crucial aspect of the Christian life. Forresters Beach Adventist Church takes this counsel very seriously and endeavours to involve itself in the needs of the community wherever we can provide value.
Besides the often impromptu visits and bringing of food to the sick and needy, as well as the frequent hospital visits by our many church members, we combine with the Haven and Gosford churches to help at the Coast Shelter Community Centre. The Shelter provides meals for those who are in need and provides a valuable service to the community. If you would like to be part of this great volunteer experience then please contact the Coast Shelter directly or speak to one of our staff members.
At Forresters Beach, we work closely with the local councils and government, as well as with ADRA (Adventist Development and Relief Agency) to regularly discuss and coordinate disaster recovery emergencies. We have trained representatives who are ready (and of course very willing!) to assist everyone in our community should the need arise. Please visit the ADRA web site for more information about how this organisation works locally as well as assisting and coordinating relief efforts worldwide
In Mark 10:45 Jesus said of Himself, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve.” If Jesus the Creator and Messiah lived as a servant then how can we do otherwise?
