Community Engagement

Our goal is to become a significant stakeholder in the community by our service, witnesses and leadership to serve the Clayton community.

Playgroup

Our church-supported Playgroup caters specially for the needs of families and children aged 0-4 years old. Our multicultural community provides a welcoming, safe and structured environment where children are encouraged to learn through interaction and play (eg. social skills, gross and fine motor skills and other general development). Parents, particularly first time mothers or fathers, can receive support for the challenges parenthood brings, and also connect with other families and resources in the community. Our daily programs follow this structure: free play, a craft activity, morning tea, music time and story time. While children are busy playing, parents can relax and connect with other parents over a cup of tea or coffee.

 

Clayton Church Playgroup is a member of Playgroup Victoria

Cafe Care Ministry

We believe in providing the love and care of Jesus to everyone despite their race, religion, background or experiences in life. Cafe Care runs every Monday night at 6:00pm for people who live in our community and struggle through life whether it be financially, addictions, relationships etc. At our meetings, we share God’s love and grace with everyone through the Bible, so that each person can develop a personal relationship with Jesus.  We also provide continual practical, social, emotional and spiritual support in a variety of ways.

Migrant English

Migrant English is a group that seeks to help people who speak little English or who are learning English as a second language by developing their English to a conversational level so that they can integrate into Australian society. This relaxed and friendly group meets each week during the school term to help you practice speaking English and expand your vocabulary.

Wednesday Cafe

As a result of one life-group journeying through and responding to the 2016 community campaign, their desire to witness and connect with the community led to the formation of this Wednesday Cafe ministry. Meeting fortnightly, everyone is welcome to join in for a FREE tea or coffee. Come, socialise and make new friends.
