the last few years we have been exploring what Urban Seed-style
community projects would look like in Norlane, Geelong, one of the lowest socio-economic areas in Victoria.
The Baptist Union of Victoria agreed to the use of the old
Norlane Baptist Church facility out of which our community development and
youth work can operate. Urban Seed has been facilitating community
meals on Monday nights in The Longroom with an average of 40-50
people attending, running breakfast during term for local families and our social enterprise cafe revitalising Labuan Square, Urban Bean.
We would like to acknowledge Give Where You Live for their financial support.
Our Geelong project incorporates a residency compenent according to the same vein as residency in the CBD. Interns live on the premises, engaging authentically with the local area and offering hospitality.
Incarnational mission has the following aims:
- To give young adults an experience of Christian community and incarnational mission, especially amongst the marginalised;
- To explore a Biblical understanding of holistic mission;
- To provide basic Christian youth & community work skills.
- 12 month commitment
- Part-time study/work
- Participation in the Christian community of the household
- Action/reflection learning
