Love in Action

Join us in offering acts of love and kindness in our community

We feel so blessed and privileged to live in this amazing part of Auckland in peaceful Aotearoa, so let's give a little back to those less fortunate.

Some ways we have been able to practise  Love-in-Action include:

  • Knitwits "Give a Kid a Blanket" winter drive
  • Jammies for Juniors
  • Food for GI Food Bank
  • Bakesale fundraiser for aid in Ukraine
  • Baby gear for Petal Foundation
  • Vanuatu Cyclone Appeal

If you have an idea for loving others, we'd love to support and encourage you and promote/share your acts of kindness with others too.  Talk to our Community Centre staff or Minister, Jordan.

Fund raiser for Ukraine

Thanks to all who supported the recent bake sale to raise funds for the Ukraine.  People flocked to buy their delicious sweet and savoury baking and $5000 was raised.

I am writing on behalf of our community group (Russian-Speaking Integrity Alliance NZ), to express our deepest gratitude and appreciation for allowing our bake sale fundraising event to take place at your wonderful Church on Sunday, July 23!

A huge thank you to everyone from your church who helped promote the event, offered support and purchased our baking. Everyone was so generous and kind-hearted, and all our baked goods were sold out within just two hours!  

We have sent the funds raised to the Ukrainian recipients, including a medical emergency group caring for the severely wounded, to put towards medical equipment and transport.  We were also able to send funds to a group rescuing people in areas damaged by the war and the floods, including orphaned children.

Blankets and other winter woolies for Give a Kid a Blanket

We were delighted to present lots of handcrafted winter woollies and PJs to the charity “Give a Kid a Blanket” during our church service on Sunday, 25th June.

Our Knit Wits knitted 70 beautiful blankets, and lots of baby clothes, and our preschool families donated 80 pairs of winter PJs and baby clothes.

"A huge and grateful thanks to you the Heliers Church and Community Centre. Truly a community gift made with love."
