As a city church, we share God’s concern for disadvantaged people in Adelaide. Our City Light ministry partners with Christian community service organisations such as WestCare Centre to provide food for the needy. They are in urgent need of donations of household cleaning products and food items; including bottled water, takeaway containers, coffee cups and cutlery, cereal, meats, instant coffee, tea bags, milk (fresh, long life and powdered) and vegetables.
If you would like to help, please deliver items to the WestCare Centre, 11-19 Millers Court, Adelaide (off Wright Street) from 9am-5pm. It’s best to avoid the busy times of 9am-10:30am and 11:30am-1pm.
If you wish to donate but are unable to drop off the items at WestCare, we can organise a collection from your doorstep.
If you have a vehicle and are willing to collect food donations from seniors or at-risk members, please email email@example.com.
Let’s shine for Christ and share His love with others.
City Light exists because many people in Adelaide struggle with poverty and being marginalised. This presents God’s people with rich opportunities to:
- Share God’s concern for disadvantaged people (Psalms 113:7-8, Isaiah 56:6-7, Luke 4:18-19)
- Do good works for which we have been created (Ephesians 2:10)
- Promote the gospel (Matthew 5:16)
- Live in obedience to God’s commands to care for the poor (Luke 10:25-37; 16:19-31)
- Present the chance to those without hope, to have the full life that Jesus promised (John 10:10)
- Live out our faith individually as God’s children and together as His people (Galatians 6:9, Hebrews 10:24)
Opportunities to share God’s concern for the disadvantaged include:
- Soup kitchens
- Welfare assistance
- Mentoring refugees
- Befriending those who are isolated at home
- Involving people through sports and activities

Through City Light at Trinity Church Adelaide, I was connected with the Sparkling Diamonds Netball Club which aims to bring together young people from different cultures through sport… Through volunteer driving, I have been able to build friendships with the girls and talk openly with them.
We have had several discussions about God, church and other topics we are dealing with in our lives and their willingness to share has been an encouragement to me. It has been a most rewarding experience for me personally and it’s a great joy to observe the girls interacting with each other socially and enjoying their time out on the courts, knowing that they may not have had this opportunity if it weren’t for all the volunteers.
