Since 1987, we have given out hundreds of thousands of meals, groceries, hygiene products and household items. We want to help people who are in crisis or struggling on a long term basis with practical items, but we know that food is not their ultimate need. With every client, volunteer and customer, we seek to share the love of Jesus Christ and walk alongside them.
Our Mission Centre is a place of refuge. The vocational training programs at the Ministry Campus and Redeemed Goods provide valuable employment skills, but also an opportunity to build into the lives of the participants. As our volunteer team works together, they develop lifelong friendships. We pray for each other and encourage each other at the daily devotions at all three divisions and the weekly Redeemed Lives men's ministry.
Our non-denominational ministry is volunteer driven and receives no regular government funding. We rely on the support of generous community groups, businesses, churches and individuals.
Open Arms Mission is a unique place. We invite you to join us and experience our community for yourself.
