Mission and community outreach

Churches of Christ in Queensland enables individuals and communities to connect by providing a range of missional and outreach services wherever there is a need.


Aged care chaplaincy

The Aged Care Chaplains provide a service of holistic pastoral care in each of our 29 residential aged care services in Queensland and Victoria.  During this last year, further progress was made in extending our pastoral care services to clients in the Retirement Living and Community Care services. A significant amount of work was also done in the development of a model of pastoral care that is specifically appropriate for palliative care facilities.

Community chaplaincy

A Community Chaplain’s role is to promote, equip, resource, support and bring to affect the Mission of Churches of Christ in Queensland. Their essential motive is to invest in peoples lives, to demonstrate unconditional love, to be available when people are in desperate need of assistance.

Community Chaplains work primarily in association with our Housing Services and provide additional wrap-around support to build resilience within our client base. They employ a proactive, holistic, chaplaincy model of practice and work with individual community members to create an environment which supports the pastoral wellbeing of staff and clients. Community Chaplains work to nurture healthy communities, which are safe, accepting, respectful, inclusive, empowered and seek justice for all.

In addition to the work in our housing communities, during the last year we deployed community wide chaplains in Pine Rivers, Boonah and Atherton Tablelands. We even have a mobile community chaplain serving in rural farming communities as part of our strategy to place chaplains in as many local communities as possible.

Medical Santo

We have partnered with Churches of Christ in Vanuatu and the Government of Vanuatu to improve health care services, by opening Churches of Christ Medical Santo.

Based in the town of Luganville on the island of Espiritu Santo, Medical Santo aims to provide international standard medical services to the local ni-Vanuatu community, expatriate locals, and foreign visitors and tourists.

Medical aid in Vanuatu

We are dedicated to integrating our services in partnership with the local ni-Vanuatu people to provide a supportive organisation, which respects the local community, meets human needs both physical and spiritual, and works for a lasting change in the lives of all those we interact with.

Vanuatu is a developing country in the South Pacific and struggles to maintain and fund health services. Medical Santo is assisting by providing medical volunteers to work, mentor, educate and provide health services and resources.

All funds raised from our fees are put back into the clinic to provide better services to the northern Islands of Vanuatu. Our goal is to raise $100,000 annually to support this mission. These funds will enable a full-time medical practitioner to continue our mission and provide the following services:

  • mobile medical services to local and remote communities
  • support services to the only hospital in the region
  • training and support to medical staff in Vanuatu
  • operating and administering the clinic to provide quality care.
