Narel and Alison Atkinson run the HelpKids school for the underpriveleged children of Colombo, Sri Lanka, and the Home of Hope temporary Residential Unit in Ja Ela.
HelpKids exists not just as a safe and educational preschool, but as a centre that provides the building blocks for children to dream again, and the foundation they need to achieve their dreams. Children not only access a quality education, good nutrition but life skills and valuable support from counsellors. HelpKids works not just see children reach their full potential, but to strengthen families and whole communities as well.
Narel and Alison also run the Home of Hope providing a safe home for up to 24 children and teens who come from difficult situations. While the children have a safe and happy environemt to live and continue their schooling, Narel and Alison work with local welfare agencies to place the children back with their families, when it is safe to do so.
If that is not enough, on the east coast of Sri Lanka they are running community development programs to support abandoned and widowed women . Seeds for Life, Chickens for Life. They provide seed and chickens to sell and eat, in order to help the widows to pull themselves from the depths of poverty.
Lights for Bikes - A major cause of death in Sri Lanka is people being knocked off their bicycles in the night. So Narel and Alison are fundraising to purchase lights for bikes in order to save lives.
Life City Church is supporting the planting of Favor Church in Manila, Philippines.
James and Kate Aiton have moved with their two young daughters to Maila permanently to plant the church there. James grew up in Manila. His father was an ACC missionary to the Philippines when he was born. So now it is James' turn to carry the mantle. He does not view himself as a missionary but as an accredited ACC pastor working in the Philippines.
James and Kate run a vibrant contemporary church in the heart of Manila attracting people from all walks of life and layers of community. Kate leads the worship and James preaches the word. Both are excellent, as good as you would find anywhere. The Aitons have a heart for the people of the Philippines and we are confident that they will grow a substantial church.
Prior to going to Manila James was the Executive pastor at Kingdom City Church in Perth and he ran Youth Alive in WA before that.

Alta-1 operates a school that provides an alternative education programme for young people between the ages of 15 and 19 years. The programme enables young people who are not suited to mainstream schooling to complete secondary education.
At Alta-1 we provide a learning environment for students who have struggled to fit anywhere else. We work hard at helping our students build real and healthy relationships with their teachers, mentors and peers. Whilst we work hard to grow the academic skills within our students, we spend as much time exploring the development of emotional and spiritual tools and skills that we all need to navigate all that life throws at us.
One of the Alta-1 campuses operates out of Life City Church. For more information visit www.alta-1.com.au
