LifeHouse Church, Northern Beaches Campus, provides a free two-course meal every Wednesday evening for anyone in the local area. As a church we want to be part of the wider community with an outward looking perspective, serving in a way that creates blessing. The Cafe is run by both church members and others from our community.
At Community Cafe we show God’s love for everyone by our actions to provide meals unconditionally. This shows God’s love in a way that plants seeds in people’s hearts that we know others water and God will make to grow.
Being a horticultural and tourism area, we serve people from many walks of life and nationalities. Some receive a meal out of great need, others participate for the social interaction, on any given night there’s diversity on just about every measure.
“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.”
