At Northridge we’ve had a history of supporting organisations that allow us to reach beyond our local or regional area, but also provide opportunities for us to personally engage with the work ‘on the ground’ by sending resources and teams to get involved.
There are many in the Morning Community who are actively involved in outreach ministries, but there are also organisations we are actively engaged with, and support regularly in a number of different ways. If you would like to know how you can get involved with any of the work they do, please speak to the contact person or with our Morning Community Pastors.
