M.A.D. (‘Make a Difference’) for Homelessness

On the first Friday of every month, Riverside Church joins with members of the local community to hand out essential goods to homeless people on the streets of Sydney’s Kings Cross.

There is a huge need. There are more than 105,000 homeless people in Australia – 28,000 in NSW alone. Over 20% are under 18, and over 40% are under 25.

Thank you to everyone who got behind Riverside’s 2nd annual 24 hour swim. We raised almost $23,000 to support this ministry in 2017 from the swim event alone.
