Carrical is a safe rooming house run by Servants Community Housing. Servants, which began as a ministry of Hawthorn West Baptist Church, is a registered housing provider supporting people at risk of homelessness across Melbourne. Carrical is one of four Servants properties providing safe, affordable housing to 95 people across the region.
Servants’ housing model is founded on the belief that each individual is valued, and the organisation creates deep communities where respect, dignity, hope and opportunity are nurtured.
On the fourth Saturday of each month a group from Kew Baptist takes food, cooks a meal and spends time talking with the residents at Carrical. Conversations range from the mundane to deep and significant issues depending on the desire of the residents at the time. All too often the residents have been afforded little dignity or respect prior to being housed by Servants, and they appreciate being accepted for who they are.
The relationships built over time between Carrical residents and the Kew Baptist Church community are deeply valued by the residents.
If you would like to be part of this important and rewarding ministry, please contact the Church Office.
