For the last 140 years the Presbyterian & Scots’ Church Joint Mission has operated in some form where there is need. Through significant times of difficulty, including the Great Depression, the recent pandemic and lockdowns, the Mission has adapted and worked towards meeting the prevailing needs of society’s most vulnerable.
Based at St Stephen’s for the last 20 years, our work is all about community caring for one another, sharing food, stories, happy times, problems, and difficulties.
What We Do
Practical support: Generous, healthy, fresh groceries on a weekly basis
- Food parcels are tailored to cultural and other requirements
- Medical prescription subsidies
- Educational subsidies
Emotional Support: Belonging to a stable community is the backbone of emotional wellbeing. Many of our community have belonged together for many years. Others just need a friendly ‘leg up’ into self-sufficiency in a wider community.
- We are partners with Foodbank Victoria who provide the bulk of our food.
- Orange Sky Laundry provides a free, weekly washing service on-site.
- Connectivity with other local community services also broadens our scope in meeting needs.
Many of our community, including those of different faiths, attend our regular chapel services.
Mission Opening Hours: Tuesdays 10am to 1.00pm
Groceries distributed; morning tea & lunch served
Mission Chapel Services: First & third Tuesdays in the month 9.30am
