4THE1 exists to love and holistically serve the children, families and community of Sir Lowry’s Pass Village and aims to be part of creating sustainable change.

Its vision is “To instil hope by showing God’s love through faith to the glory of God”, its mission “To reach the community of Sir Lowry’s Pass Village with the gospel of Jesus Christ and to develop literacy and numeracy in children aged 5 -18 years old”, and its ministry philosophy “Expose children to the truth as found in God’s Word, through evangelism, discipleship, and education, in the context of a safe environment.”

The primary focus is children, but these children exist within a family structure and broader community structure. This integrated network of relationships is where 4THE1 seeks to serve. The desire is to see individual lives transformed by the gospel so that healing and restoration can take place within the community.

Sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with others is paramount to what is done, with actions reflecting beliefs. The heart is for evangelism, discipleship and education. Education and a safe place to play are the vehicles used to connect with the children and, through interacting and caring for them, it is also hoped to get to know their families and the wider community. 4THE1 seeks to love, care and support families through practical acts of kindness.
