the habitat partners

Through creative interaction the Habitat Congregation seeks to develop strong relationships with Community Partners.

People, groups and organisations connected with the church who share in our values and vision but are not members of the Congregation are welcomed as Habitat Partners.

Partners run their organisations, events, programs and activities from the buildings. The Church is enriched by relationships with partners as we develop opportunities to share in the mission and ministry of common projects. Our church buildings are more than venues for outside groups to rent they are community assets for all to share and enjoy.

If you are interested in becoming a Habitat Partner, download the Habitat Partnership Document (pdf) and make contact.
