Listed below are a selection ministries that church@paravista is associated with.
Container of Hope (COH) sends 40 foot shipping containers of donated and recycled goods to developing nations to assist poor and vulnerable communities. In this way COH redistributes used items to needy communities.
COH works in partnership with sponsors, who are usually organisations in Australia or overseas, that have contact with overseas humanitarian projects or communities in need.
Operation Christmas Child sends shoe box gifts each year to bless children in need around the world. Pastors around the world distribute the shoe boxes in places where people may not know about Jesus. The Greatest Gift, a Gospel story booklet from Samaritan’s Purse, is also given to shoe box recipients. After receiving shoe box gifts, many children are invited to participate in The Greatest Journey, where they learn to grow in Christ and share Him with others. Families are reached, churches grow, new churches are started, and communities are transformed.
Available for the community, a number of volunteers maintain a friendly place to browse, find a bargain, or pop in for a cuppa and a chat.
