St John’s Anglican Church
The congregation and minister at St John’s are eager to support the families of Heathcote and surrounding areas who take part in Bunbunarik activities. Feel free to get in touch if you would like a confidential conversation, a shoulder to cry on, or a community to belong to. Sunday services are at 10 am. Everyone is welcome!
Volunteers at the St John’s Op Shop can help you, whether you need kids’ clothing and toys or local knowledge and advice. Volunteering at the Op Shop can be a great way to make friends and give back to the community.
The St John’s minister has her office within Bunbunarik and tends to be there on Wednesdays and Thursdays. If her door is open, come in and introduce yourself. Seek her out for:
A listening ear.
Short-term relationship counselling and marriage preparation/enrichment.
Baptism and confirmation preparation.
Respectful exploration of your spiritual journey.
Informal confidential debriefing for Bunbunarik workers.
St Vincent de Paul
The St Vincent de Paul Society’s members and volunteers provide practical support, advocacy and friendship to the most vulnerable in our community through local groups, known as conferences.
At Community Foodshare Heathcote they redistribute several thousand kilos of unwanted food from fresh fruit and vegetables to pre-cooked meals, bread and other grocery items. Bunbunarik Childrens Hub are currently in discussion to see how they can work with Foodshare in assisting young families who may require assistance.
Heathcote Community House
Heathcote Community House acts as a hub for local information, activities, events, courses, workshops, groups and festivals occurring in Heathcote. The house has a community noticeboard as well as valuable information about what’s happening around Heathcote on their website.
