embrace armidale's mission

We seek to share God’s love with women in Armidale through friendship and by providing for practical needs such as furniture, linen and food. We work together with other groups and services.

We collect furniture and pass it on to those who need it. We also organise events to supply specific needs such as blankets or food.

We are a group of volunteers from the St. Marks Church family.

We offer a free service and are grateful for all the generosity and support than enables us to do what we do.
