The name and vision of the organisation is encompassed around Deuteronomy 15:11 “For the poor will never cease from the land; therefore I command you, saying, ‘You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land’” (NKJV).
Open Hands Community Care
Open Hands Community Care is the not-for-profit outreach and social services ministry of The House of Prayer Church. An outworking of the love that the Church has for its local, national and global family. Helping individuals and families reach their full potentials and thus live their lives abundantly (John 10:10) is the overarching mandate of Open Hands Community Care.
Food Relief Services is one of the Programs and Services offered by Open Hands onsite at 318 Ritchie Road, Pallara QLD 4110 via our Neighbourhood Marketplace (Discounted Groceries Store), as a way of offering a helping hand in reducing the cost of daily household staples, by giving the community access to discounted foods and groceries. Our Marketplace is a great place to shop and work for anyone interested and particularly in giving back to the community. Open Hands needs additional volunteers to support the existing team.
If you are interested in finding out more or partnering with us in making a difference in someone’s life, we would love to hear from you!
