Who We Are

1000 Meals Project is a ministry expression of HopeUC. We are a church for people of all ages and stages of life, and who are committed to bringing practical and spiritual hope for our community. This project has evolved as Darlene Zschech, our Senior Pastor went through chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer in 2014 and found many going through the journey who did not have adequate practical support, and felt that this was one way we as a church could help. We are one church in five locations; Newcastle, Maitland, Charmhaven, Gosford and Peninsula and are affiliated with ‘Australian Christian Churches’ denomination, which has over 1100 Churches and over 300,000 members Australia-wide.

This project is made possible through the support of our wonderful team of volunteers who love to serve families in our local community through the delivery of meals.
