"Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests but also for the interests of others." [Philippians 2:3-4]
We, at the Rock Worship Centre, is committed to supporting our local community.
We have partnered with Western Sydney University (WSU), to build a student support group by providing essential food supplies to financially insecure students.
Since the start of COVID in 2020, we have collaborated with OzHarvest in distributing frozen meal boxes to students at WSU student accommodation village, Parramatta.
In 2021, we volunteered to help out serving hot food on Wednesday nights at the WSU Parramatta city campus and the student village. Also, we have had the privilege to be financially supported by Study NSW (part of NSW State Treasury) in providing emergency food hampers to international students who are struggling during this difficult COVID time.
We are also planning to provide free Justice of Peace (JP) services to the students by certifying copies of original documents and witnessing people making a statutory declaration or affidavit.
In serving the students, we found that we have formed meaningful and deep friendships with the community we have come to serve. Jesus once said it is more blessed to give than receive (Acts 20:35). The blessings that God has given us is not meant to be entirely for us but channelled through us to help others. God loves everyone with the same love that he has shown to us.
