Who’s Who in 22, Community: Paul Clark
Words by Moreton Daily

Redcliffe Uniting Church Senior Minister the Reverend Paul Clark, pictured left, led his congregation as it opened a $5 million community hub and continued to support important local causes in 2022.

The Redcliffe Uniting Community Hub opened in July, with an official worship service to bless the facility and separate community open day to celebrate its arrival.

The hub aims to bring more support services to the region and create a sense of community.

It offers services including counselling, NDIS support, foster parent support and an onsite training café, Fils Your Cup.

There is also a fenced playground adjacent to the café so parents can supervise their children and enjoy a coffee.

Paul said the hub brought to life the congregation’s vision, with most of the $5 million cost of the new centre coming from church funds.

Among the groups that call the hub home are a playgroup, seniors’ group, meditation group and men’s breakfast group, adding to a sense of connection.

Paul said the hub had caught the attention of the Uniting Church and Uniting Care was exploring rolling out the model across Queensland.

The Redcliffe Uniting Church has continued to support community causes throughout 2022 including Raise it for Redcliffe Hospital, the Redcliffe Community Care Network, The Breakfast Club of Redcliffe, child protection, Moreton Bay Says No to Violence and many more.
