Because God has been so generous to us in Jesus, we want to be generous to our neighbours. Here’s some of the ways we try to actively love our local community, because in Jesus God first loved us.
CPC has a growing relationship with our local state schools; Coorparoo Secondary College, Coorparoo State School, & Holland Park State School. Through volunteering alongside school chaplains, teaching Religious Instruction, & supporting the school communities in a variety of other ways, CPC hopes to build strong relationships with Coorparoo families.
Our church provides non-perishable items for food hampers to support students and families at Coorparoo Secondary College, through Tamar Mulholland the Chaplain.
Coorparoo Carols in the Chapel
Each year at CPC we love celebrating the Christmas season by coming together to sing carols and hear of the amazing gift of Jesus Christ.
This year our Coorparoo Carols in the Chapel is on Sunday 13th December and will be a great Christmas carols event for the whole family.
Working Together to Help Those Less Fortunate
Compared to many places in the world, life in Brissy is pretty comfortable. To help those less fortunate, we want to raise funds for two charities, and not only that, but we also want to invite our local community to partner with us.
TEAR responds “to the needs of poor communities around the world. Our motivation comes from our belief that God loves all people, and in Christ offers them the opportunity of a new life. We believe that God is just, and has particular care for the poor and those who suffer as victims of injustice” (see here for more information).

Operation Christmas Child
In 2015 we’ll be asking our Church family & our neighbours if they’d like to pack a shoe box for Operation Christmas Child.
From Samaritan’s Purse, who organise Operation Christmas Child:
“Samaritan’s Purse has changed the lives of children through Operation Christmas Child since 1993. Every year, generous people across the world lovingly pack shoe boxes with gifts – simple, yet powerful messages of God’s unconditional love. And when a child opens a shoe box, they’re opening more than a present lovingly prepared just for them. They’re opening up their community to a world of life-changing opportunities” (see here for more information).
