In a world that often seems to spin faster every day, it's easy to lose sight of the remarkable acts of kindness and unity that shape our communities. One such heartwarming tale of generosity and growth is the transformation of the old Pittsworth Fire Station into a haven for the community, aptly named the LifeCare Community. This remarkable journey not only symbolizes the power of collaboration but also stands as a testament to the idea that nurturing sustainable solutions can empower individuals for a lifetime.

The LifeCare Community, previously known for its charitable efforts in providing hampers and a small shop, has taken a leap forward with the gift of a new building from another charity. This move not only promises a larger space but also embodies a profound shift in perspective. As the old adage goes, "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime." This new space provides a canvas for expanding this philosophy into a reality.

At the heart of this transformation lies the recognition that true community support goes beyond temporary relief. The larger building offers the space needed to establish educational programs that equip vulnerable members of the community with skills that will stand the test of time. By teaching them how to "fish," or providing them with the tools to sustain themselves in the face of life's challenges, the LifeCare Community is fostering independence and resilience.

The strategic utilization of the new space is particularly striking. Formerly a fire station, it now serves as a symbol of rejuvenation. The building's capacity for expansion holds the promise of a brighter future for those in need. What was once a space dedicated to emergency response has seamlessly transitioned into a sanctuary that provides guidance and support in navigating life's difficulties.

Crucially, the LifeCare Community recognizes the rising costs of living and the potential impact it can have on individuals and families. As accommodation and living expenses continue to surge, the community is well aware of the challenges that lie ahead. The provision of facilities such as a shower and the potential for future laundry services is a poignant reminder of the community's commitment to addressing these practical needs. In a world where the smallest gestures can make the biggest differences, these amenities can help restore dignity and confidence to those facing hardships.

Beyond the physical facilities, the transformation of the Pittsworth Fire Station highlights the potential for a safe space to become a catalyst for positive change. It's not just a building; it's a beacon of hope, a testament to the spirit of unity and compassion that defines a community. The metamorphosis of the fire station stands as a remarkable example of what can happen when organizations, charities, and individuals come together with a shared vision and a heart to uplift.

As the LifeCare Community settles into its new space, the story of this transformation serves as a reminder of the incredible impact we can have when we believe in the potential for growth within every individual. With a focus on teaching rather than merely providing, the community is sowing seeds of empowerment that will bear fruit for generations to come. The journey from fire station to community haven stands as an inspiration for us all to seek out ways to create lasting change in the lives of those who need it most.

Foodbank has arrived in Pittsworth. It is has been initiated by Harvest New Life Church every Friday from 12 pm – 4 pm and Saturday 9 - 11 am.


Food hampers are available for $40 and contain non-perishable products that would retail for around $70. There are also regular “freebies” donated by local individuals and businesses. This past week there were bread, eggs, numerous items on the free shelves as well as pre-prepared frozen meals, mince, sausages, pies and chicken in the freezer.


If you can’t get to the foodbank during its operating hours, orders can be placed online via messenger or, if you don’t have the technology, you can call Brett Dolley, senior pastor, on 0418 615 773. There is free delivery within the Pittsworth township.


Here at the Pittsworth Foodbank we have experienced so much love in giving and this always goes both ways. There have been so much generous people in our community, it is such a thriving town, we are so blessed to be a part of this community.

We have a gentleman who does a bread run to Toowoomba and donates us free bread for you all.


We love our volunteers. What a wonderful way to connect with your community whilst finding a place to belong. There is so much evidence out there for your well-being to volunteer and what better way than lifting up other people and supporting them in their time of need. If you are interested in volunteering just pop in and have a chat.


We have been donated a freezer and two display fridges.

We had the opportunity to receive a local government community grant which enabled us to buy the much needed shelving we needed to display our shelf items.

We had the pleasure of distributing food hampers to flood victims in Inglewood. These hampers were accompanied with loaves of frozen bread to tide the locals over until the roads were opened.

The shop gave away 3 hampers in the local Christmas in the park event.

The local Pittsworth Woolies give us the privilege of distributing close to date freezer items, they stock up our freezer every week. They have been such a blessing.


We received a phone call from our local Woolies manager, they had a lot of hot food left over. We went in and placed it in containers and made up 25 hot meals. Brett and I distributed the meals at the local caravan park. The locals very much appreciated the meals.

Today, we received a phone call from a lady donating eggs every Friday, so we are able to offer free eggs with every hamper as well.


“We’re excited, as a church, to be able to provide this service to the Pittsworth community,” said Brett, “Our commitment to supporting the community is a key part of our church’s vision and passion.”

As well as supporting our community, the proceeds from the foodbank go towards supporting the church’s youth program for high school students which runs every Friday evening during the school term from 6:30 – 9:00 pm.

“We regularly have up to 30 or more students attending our youth program,” said Brett, “And this year, we have gone from fortnightly meetings to weekly. It’s great to see.”

The church also has 1000 litre IBC’s (pods), kindly donated and on sale for $75 for uncleaned and $100 cleaned.
