Churches

Churches are the backbone of our work. Here's how your church can be a part.

Starfish Kids

Confronting Abuse. Changing Lives. Transforming Communities.

Children of abuse, abandonment and neglect are not just in other countries. They live in your neighbourhoods, go to school in your city and they need you to show them they are loved and valued. Learn the facts on foster children in your community. Understanding the need will lead your church family to action.

How can your church get involved?

Churches are the backbone of what we do. Through the well-established network of Christian faith communities, we are able to tap into a rich network of volunteers and resources. Most importantly, Churches serve in the frontline of our work, as they are the ones directing and implementing each local camp.

Please note: Children of all faiths or no faith are welcome at Starfish Kids Camp. We value helping all kids to change the trajectory of their lives.

Can my church host a camp?

It all starts with CAMP – a place where God will meet the children who live in foster care and give them HOPE. A place where they don’t have to be afraid. A place where they can just be kids and step away from the chaos of their lives. Launching a camp unites your church family with a purpose, expands your church into the community, and brings the church and council together for a noble cause.

The Starfish Alliance actively works with an ecumenical and multi-denominational church network that varies widely in traditions and denomination but is unified in affirming standard Christian faith as outlined in our faith statement.

I’m not part of a church, but I’d like to volunteer.

If you are not currently part of a church, there is a place for you! Volunteers are not necessarily required to be church members or members of the sponsoring church, but for reasons of accountability, the directors and those in core positions must be members of the host church and accountable to the sponsoring pastoral team and the Starfish Alliance.
