At Life, we take what the Bible says seriously. And when the Bible tells us to feed the hungy and help the needy, we take that seriously too!

We're not going to stand around and wait for someone else to meet the needs in our community, so we are involved in many different area's where there are needs in the people around us.

We are involved in Soul Cafe, Gamblers Anonymous, Smart Recovery, Life House, and many other practical ways we can make a difference in peoples lives in a very real way.

Soul Cafe

Soul Café was established in August 2003 to serve hot meals to the homeless and disadvantaged people of Newcastle, free-of-charge. We currently serve over 700 meals per week.

This is not a soup kitchen! The staff at LifeShapers work hard to create a café-like atmosphere where people are given table service and a choice of healthy and tasty meals. We aim to serve the disadvantaged in the community with dignity and respect.

The café employs two full-time chefs and provides a community support person who assists clients in areas such as accommodation, finding appropriate welfare support and legal representation and medical advice when required. People are waited on by volunteers and Work For The Dole participants.

In 2004, Soul Café was nationally recognized for its contribution to the community by being awarded the Department of Employment & Workplace Relations (DEWR) Award.

You can also support Life Shapers with a direct deposit donation to Westpac Bank BSB 032-505 Account No. 299 497. The Donation is Tax Deductable so please give generously.

 As of 2011, Soul Cafe has begun spreading its influence across Newcastle, with the opening of cafe locations now in Mayfield and Newcastle.  This wouldn't be possible without the partnership of Mayfield Uniting Church.  So here's the low down...



 Soul Cafe is a unique cafe that works with the highly disadvantaged members of the Hunter community, many of whom are homeless, have a mental illness, substance abuse issues, or live in poverty.  This is a really moving short film of Soul Cafe's work in action.
