Ballina Centre of Mission
Emma Rodrigues runs our Ballina Centre of Mission, which was launched in April 2016. Since it's inception Emma and her family have been building bridges and listening to the community in Ballina, connecting with parents, families, children and youth and showing the community that the churches are involved in helping and caring for those in need. They run a weekly Futsal (Brazilian indoor football) class and are involved in building relationship with the local Muslim and Traveller communities. Over the summer months they run weekly sessions providing children’s ministry with games, puppets, drama, crafts and music. Emma is also a director of MABS (Money, Advice and Budgeting Service) and she also helps out at the local Mental Health Recovery/Training Centre. They are currently looking for a building to run a “drop in” centre and have a bus to travel around the the different housing estates.
