Oxley members get their hands dirty

Oxley Uniting Church members, in Brisbane, and ncyc11 volunteers (pictured right) took to the streets distributing bread and 400 bags of ice to those without power. Seven Oxley Uniting Church families were flooded.

The congregation set up an impromptu creche/child drop-in centre for parents needing to clean flooded homes, offered food and drinks to the community and volunteers, and acted as a backup to the ‘youthonthestreets’ counselling team from Sydney.

Minister Rev David MacGregor  said it was “a humbling example of the church being the hands, feet and heart of Jesus in their community.”

Mr MacGregor has also written a song as a reflection. Music is available here.
