Ministering to the needs of people is a form of Christian worship; the organisation recognises the intrinsic worth of each person and his or her rights, together with the necessity for each person, without discrimination, to act responsibly for the benefit of the community.
“In as much as you have done it unto one of the least of these … you have done it unto me.” – Jesus (Matthew 25:40)
A short history of Eventide Homes (NSW) a Company Limited by Guarantee
Eventide Homes Appeal, known as Eventide Homes (NSW) is a registered charity and was registered as a Not for Profit Company Limited by Guarantee in 1962
Its origins are found in Eventide Homes Appeal in 1946, where a group of Christian men and women decided to provide accommodation for the “Aged Needy”. We continue today as an independent Christian organisation established primarily to provide services to older persons in need.
None of the original group held land or property in their own right, they were all volunteers. The organization was based upon their love for Christ, love for their fellow man and had no prospect of acquiring any real estate. They were sure that if they had faith, worked intelligently and hard, and trusted in God, they would have a measure of success.
