Meals at the Bridge
Meals at the Bridge is a ministry running out of Melbourne Life that reaches those that find themselves on the streets in Melbourne's CBD. Each Saturday Night, a dedicated team prepare and provide fresh home-cooked meals to people who have no financial means to feed themselves. From this service and as a natural extention, relationships are built, and the love of Christ is shown and expressed through support, provisions and opportunities to share the gospel.

We are a church made up of people who have a strong desire to reach out to those who are in desperate need of Jesus, ministering to them on a spiritual and practical level. We have been steadily building international relationship with a missions focus with Africa and Indonesia for many years, supporting on-going ministries.
As a result of this relationship building, in the second half of 2011 saw us starting our first church outside of Australia, 'Jakarta Life' in Cikarang, an outer suburb of Jakarta, Indonesia. The church is flouring with a powerful presence of the Holy Spirit and desire to see the region reached for Jesus.
We also financially support a primary school that has started in the heart of one of the largest slums in Kenya, Africa. The school is run by a group of dedicated believers who want to sow into a generation of children who have near nothing, who do not have the opportunity to go to a State School that have financial commitments. Our financial support of this school means provision of teachers, uniforms, supplies and resources. Please see the testimony below.
FROM THE OVERSEEING PASTOR IN KENYA: "The school has grown gradually. The approximate number of children who come to school on a daily basis is fifty (50) (both boys and girls). The school has a preschool (kindergarten) for the small children and primary for the bigger children from class one up to class four. The school has three teachers who are dedicated whole-heartedly to teaching the children. Secular education and spiritual teachings. We have a vocational bible study (V.B.S.) where we teach the children the word of God. This is to enable the children to grow knowing God. Due to your aid, we have bought blackboards, text books and other teaching aids. Now teaching is no longer a burden. Thank you for the materials you gave us. We have a feeding program where we feed the children and thus meeting their physical needs. Thanks for you brethren for making our dream of caring for the less fortunate a reality.
