ABOUT JESUS CARES MINISTRY
Jesus Cares Ministry is a Christian Ministry that has operated in the inner city of Sydney since 1987.This ministry started through the vision of John Jones, a young man at the time (still actively involved in the ministry) who came to know that there were young people as young as 10 years of age on the streets of Sydney.
We started a coffee shop at no 7 Roslyn Street, Kings Cross and since that time have run a refuge or shelter for homeless people, a food van around the streets of the inner city of Sydney and a fellowship meeting on Sunday afternoons.
We operate in three, areas; the Inner City ,Western Sydney (Lalor Park area) and South Western Sydney:
We serve the poor, homeless and lonely people of Sydney.
Thursday morning - hot breakfasts around Central Railway Station
Friday and Saturday nights - a food van for all we meet
each Sunday afternoon - fellowship meeting followed by a hot meal.
We are involved in an Op Shop at Lalor Park where we also run a mini Food Bank for those on benefits which provides great ministry opportunities in a community that has a high level of public housing and unemployment.
