LOCAL AND GLOBAL MISSION

We believe that our purpose is to bring glory to God through making disciples. As we recall the wonderful news of the gospel, we choose to bring glory to God through worship, community, service and multiplication. We believe that God has called the church to disciple those who do not know Jesus into faith, and to disciple those who do know Jesus into deeper sense of faith in Christ. We pursue this calling through local mission in our communities and workplaces and globally through church planting. 

LOCAL MISSION

SAFE FAMILIES FOR CHILDREN


Safe Families for Children (Safe Families) accepts referrals from partnering local authorities, matching struggling families with caring volunteers in their area who can provide tailored help and ‘wraparound’ care. Involvement with Safe Families makes a crucial difference for some families in preventing the need for children to go into care.


Safe Families for Children works by bringing together:

A safe and friendly temporary home for children

Befriending and support for struggling parents

Access to useful goods and services


Safe Families volunteers help in the following ways:


Host Family Volunteers

Trustworthy families who take children into their homes, giving the parents much needed space to deal with the pressing issues.


Family Friend Volunteers

Friendly folk who befriend, mentor and support parents through their crisis, helping them get back on their feet and making the home stable for them and their children.


Resource Friend Volunteers

Generous supporters who find they are able to provide useful goods or skills to benefit families in need, such as a cot, clothing or helping with cooking or gardening.


Family Coaches

Skilled individuals able to offer support and experience to help families make the necessary changes and help our volunteers provide the right kind of care and support.


If you want to get involved and serve as volunteer through Safe Families please get in contact with Vikki Pestell at Cornerstone Church.
