WHAT WE DO
Reaching out to the Inner West...
At CCIW we don't want to live in a "holy huddle", isolated from the world outside, so we run activities and events that enable us to connect with and serve the community around us.
Each year we run various special events such as Cinema in the Cemetery, We Heart Five Dock Festival, Carols by Candlelight and Jazz in the Graveyard and we're really pleased these have become well-known community occasions.
Our kids activities include our Friday afternoon kids club BLAST, Scripture classes in the local primary schools, and our group for toddlers and their carers called MOCHA.
The Attic reaches out to high schoolers in the area, running on Friday nights at Five Dock.
A regular short course we run called 'Wine, Cheese and a Conversation about God' is specially designed for those who'd like to explore the foundations of the Christian faith in a relaxed environment with lots of room for questions and discussion.
Because many people in our area have English as a second language, on Friday mornings we run English classes and on Sundays the English Corner offers help with essays, forms, resumes and conversation.
And if you're struggling financially, we want to help you find long-term solutions. Our Real Help drop-in centre provides No-interest loans, money management training, emergency help and referrals to other services in the area.

CCIW supports a range of Linked Ministries. From front-line mission work in South-East Asia to regular church work in remote Australia, our support helps keep these gospel workers at the coal face of the church's mission.
