How we’re helping
Jesus tells us to “Go”! Go into all the world and share the good news about the free gift of new life and new beginnings with God our creator. When we reach out with the Good News about Jesus, lives are encountered and transformed. Communities and cities are changed.
As a Church, we believe in expressions of God’s love both locally and abroad. Locally, we continue outreach (missions) by building Church Community through our Sunday services, connect groups, Real Men, Women of Worth, Ignite Youth, and C3 Cares.
Abroad, we have been building lasting outreach relationships with Papua New Guinea, India, and Zambia. Read more below.
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation” (Mk. 16:15)

Future Focus Ministry India
C3 Church Shellharbour is supporting Future Focus Ministries with their work in India. Future Focus Ministries, with the help of Pastor John Victor, work in villages near Visakhapatnam India (district of Andhra Pradesh) and in the Mumbai slums, providing fresh water wells, education, clothing, and rice. Future Focus Ministries helps people discover the richness of life and freedom available through Jesus Christ.
The aim is to reach the poor, underprivileged, lonely, sick, and widowed through drilling water wells, providing education, and, the distribution of clothes, blankets, and food, to Christian and non-christian alike. There are boys and girls homes, as well as support for the widowed. The elevation of widows out of poverty is achieved through a sewing program which provides micro-economic income and business skills allowing these women to start a new life.

Papua New Guinea
C3 Shellharbour has had the privilege of partnering with Pastor Debbie Gorro at Bushwarra Church just outside Port Moresby (also referred to as Pom City). Ps Debbie, and her late husband Ps Magi Gorro, were installing water pumps along with new Churches throughout Papua New Guinea. Bushwarra continues to be a thriving local Church.
