Love Bites exists to provide food as love to those within or connected to the Saint Augustine’s family, when it’s needed most. It may be in the midst of a tough life event, like chronic illness or death, or a disruptive period of life, like the birth of a baby... this is when we want to shower people with love and food is a beautiful, practical expression of exactly that.
At Saint Augustine's, we believe the core values of “welcome” and “generous hospitality” are vitally important so that more people can come to know God’s love in tangible ways. Our “Welcome to the Neighbourhood” initiative is a partnership with the Red Cross to welcome and support refugee families as they resettle in Auckland.
Earlier in the year, we provided every new refugee family arriving in Auckland with a new bundle of towels along with kitchen appliances of a new kettle, toaster, and rice cooker. We also want to partner with the Red Cross to provide menotring and support services to new refugees as they settle in Auckland. More details to come...stay tuned!
