Church 4 Life

When you visit our Woodrising Op Shop you will meet the bubbly, smart, creative and super friendly Debbie. Being a butterfly, she also does shifts in our Cardiff and Warners Bay Op Shops and even in our Contact Centre on Wednesdays! From a varied career Debbie blesses us with skills from a range of industries that help us in providing better service to our donors and customers.

Debbie shares her story: “I always wanted to work in a second hand shop, but what I am a part of is so much bigger than that. Since finding work with Church 4 Life, my life has been enriched in many ways. For the first time in a long time, I am working in a team as a team delivering great things to our community. Together we are changing people’s lives. And it feels GOOD!

This GREAT team I am most fortunate to work with shows compassion and understanding towards those in need and are beyond grateful to all those who make this mission possible. I have gained a feeling of fulfilment by doing what I am doing, and I want to do more!”

And our customers gain so much because of the care Debbie shares with everyone who comes in.

Thanks to your support of Church 4 Life Op Shops Debbie’s life has changed for the better.
