C3 SYD Cares.

Mercy. Grace. Justice.

C3 SYD Cares is about mercy, grace, and justice. We walk together to minister the love of Christ to the people of Sydney, Australia and overseas. It takes us past our church walls into our communities through a variety of initiatives to meet their very real needs. We aim to bring help, healing, restore dignity and empower lives. 

We believe we have freely received and therefore we choose to freely give. We are blessed to be a blessing. Our concern is the needs of others as much as our own – let’s lift up our eyes and think Beyond.


what it is the LORD requires of you: to act justly, to love faithfulness,
and to walk humbly with your God.

– Micah 6:8


We are so grateful to the individuals, families and businesses who partner financially or volunteer their time to make a difference in the lives of others. Click the links below to our secure gateway or to join the team.
