“Eternal God, in wisdom and love you created our earth to sustain us and give us life. Strengthen, sustain and give new heart to our farmers and to all who are affected by drought; be with those who support them. Strengthen and comfort the victims of the fires, those who have lost family, friends, property and stock. Protect our volunteer firefighters and all members of essential services. Amen.”

The Richmond Churches Food Centre has about 50 volunteers, including students from various schools, but more volunteers are needed.  All volunteers require a current Working with Children Check.
