Trinity Neighbours 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

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.
Trinity Church Adelaide partners with the following welfare agencies, who care for the homeless and disadvantaged in Adelaide: WestCare, St Luke’s Mission, Hutt St Centre, Anglicare, St John’s Youth and a Women’s Refuge.
Due to COVID-19, each of these groups ask individuals not to self-deliver goods to their premises. Whilst services at Trinity are suspended, to continue to support our partners we invite all Trinity members to donate non-perishable food and personal hygiene items to designated addresses for us to collect and deliver. Items can be deposited in the black, labelled containers that are located outside near the front doors. The suburbs with drop-off points are:
- Adelaide (Trinity Church Adelaide reception)
- Black Forest
- Gilles Plains
- Vale Park
Please call Michael Maude on 0477 440 644 or email email@example.com to ask for the exact location. If you are unable to deliver goods to any designated addresses, contact Michael and he will arrange collection.
May we reflect God’s generosity and love to those in need.
