Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on way for Australians and New Zealanders to bless children in need around the world by filling shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, school supplies and other fun gifts. We collect the gift-filled shoeboxes and distribute them to children in over 100 countries in the Name of Jesus Christ.
After receiving a shoebox gift, children have the opportunity to enrol in The Greatest Journey – our dynamic, 12-lesson Bible study course that guides children through what it means to faithfully follow Jesus Christ.
The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Our Parishioners assist with the Deliveries for Meals on Wheels, which are cooked fresh and delivered hot, ready to eat Monday to Friday in Greater Shepparton. A three-course meal is provided to each client and they receive a quarterly menu allowing them to choose from four main meals and three desserts, as well as receiving a soup.
For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat” (Mathew 25:35). Through its clergy, the Anglican Parish of Shepparton extends a helping hand to those in need by providing Coles vouchers as well as a lovely chat! This ministry allows relationships to be built, friendships to be formed, and the warmth of love to be shared.

There are a growing number of people in our community who are unable to put food on their table. Through our weekly food collection project and support from Shepparton food share, we are able to distribute food directly to local families. If you would like to donate non-perishable foods or receive food parcels, please do not hesitate to contact the parish office on 58217630
