NEWS & EVENTS
STORIES OF NEW HOPE CARE
We have witnessed people's lives change through using New Hope Care's services. Here are a couple of stories:
KAY & LES
Kay & Les have been serving at the Kings table since 2014! They came as guests on our first ever Soup Kitchen & have been coming ever since! They were living in one of the local hostels, and have enjoyed serving in a number of areas. They now coordinate our clothing shop for the guests & have joined in the CAP money (budgeting) course & our men’s & women’s groups.
Since 2016, Beau has been coming to the Kings Table soup Kitchen. He was staying at a homeless shelter previously & has a past which includes abuse, violence & addiction. He came for several weeks and was loud & disruptive, like a powder keg about to explode. One day he decided to turn from his old life & make a new start. He asked for some prayer from our team, & he wept like a baby. We noticed the change instantly. He softened, and a peace came over him. He’s now been serving as a waiter for over 18 months, and he’s recently joined the church music team playing the percussion. He’s had a couple of consistent jobs recently but is looking for something more long-term. Beau calls New Hope his family. And you rarely see him without a smile on his face. He’s on a journey like we all are, and he’s definitely heading in the right direction!

Portrait of Hope
Elisabeth Murray, a local Brisbane artist with a heart for those in need spent a season recently dropping by the King's Table to do portraits of our guests. These portraits were then featured at the New Hope Care Charity Art Auction on 26th of May 2018. You can have a look at these portraits and read the stories behind these amazing works at Elisabeth’s blog found at www.portraitofhope.com
