Churches of Christ Care, a division of Churches of Christ in Queensland and working with Churches of Christ in Vic/Tas, provides a range of care services to vulnerable people at different stages of their life journey including early childhood services, child protection, community and affordable housing, retirement living, community aged care and residential aged care.

Churches of Christ Care is a not-for-profit organisation built on a foundation of Christian values, commitment to quality care, trust and respect for clients and the community. We strive to create an inclusive, caring, compassionate environment that meets our clients’ needs without discrimination or prejudice. Everyone is welcome to call on our help, regardless of religion, beliefs or background.

Services provided by Churches of Christ Care are funded by a mix of government subsidies, grants, fees and charges for our services, such as early childhood, and through fundraising activities.
