Southport Uniting Church was the first church in Queensland to host a Luke14 “Mental Health Unwrapped workshop. The congregation developed a range of intentional activities to link with the community, including a Never Alone Friendship Group. It also welcomes other groups to use their facilities, including the Men Out There (MOT) drama group for homeless men. Flourish Arts Festival, a congregational initiative celebrates the arts as a platform for healing and growth through a range of displays, performances, and workshops.
