Coffee Cup Challenge.

Join us for the Coffee Cup Challenge. 

From International Coffee Day on 1 October until Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday) on Tuesday 16 February 2021,  put aside the cost of a cup of coffee each week to support people in their time of need.

Making a small sacrifice regularly, can make a big difference for people in need.

On Pancake Day (or around that date), we encourage your congregation to come together to celebrate with pancakes or a morning tea.

Each coffee cup donation is placed into a Coffee Cup Challenge collection. When you register, you will receive information on how participants can access a tax deductible receipt.

All funds raised from the Coffee Cup Challenge will support people experiencing crisis, vulnerability and disadvantage. 

Barry, Brighton

In 2017, Barry Schofield came up with the perfect recipe to shake up St Leonard’s Brighton Beach Uniting Church Pancake Day fundraising activities.

It made me think that if 100 people saved the cost of a cup of coffee each week, it would quickly add up to a sizeable amount.

Airport West Uniting Church joined the Coffee Cup Challenge for the first time in 2019.

I have friends who attend St Leonard’s Brighton Beach Uniting Church and they spoke about the Coffee Cup Challenge with great enthusiasm

Firefighter Stairclimb 2020

On Saturday 12 September 2020, 600 firefighters and other emergency service personnel would have stepped up to fight depression, post-traumatic stress injury (PTSI) and suicide by climbing the 28 floors of Crown Metropol hotel wearing 25kgs of turnout gear and breathing apparatus.

Firefighters from across the country are getting ready to step up to support mental health services.

This year’s Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb on Saturday 7 September will see 600 firefighters climb the 28 floors of Crown Metropol Hotel.
