Join us for our annual Christmas Chaplaincy Fundraising Dinner held in conjunction with Scripture Union.
On Friday, 5th November, 300 invited guests from our local community will come together to help raise funds for Chaplaincy in our schools.

Attendees will enjoy a sit-down 3 course dinner, entertainment, keynote speeches, live raffles and auctions as well as the opportunity to mingle with like-minded business owners and individuals.

WHY ARE WE FUNDRAISING

For a number of schools, a subsidy from the Government is received annually to support having a Chaplain in the school. However, the reality is this funding only covers a little over a day per week of their salary. In order to make a larger, long term impact, and to have the opportunity to support more students, Chaplains are needed in our schools more regularly.

We are reaching out to our local community to help us raise additional funding in order to make this need a reality.
To help raise funds we are hosting our annual Chaplaincy Fundraising Dinner.

“Let’s Help Hope Happen this Christmas.”

ABOUT SCHOOL CHAPLAINCY

School Chaplaincy has become a highly respected and essential service for many schools across Australia, especially in Queensland.

In the Caboolture/Morayfield area there are currently 14 schools benefiting from the inclusion of a School Chaplain.
The role of a School Chaplain is to provide social, emotional and spiritual support to students and their families. School Chaplains work to help students find a better way to deal with life issues in a relaxed and comfortable environment. They provide a listening ear and a caring presence in the school and are often involved in school activities and events which allow the students to connect with the Chaplains organically.
