The goal for Community Support is that people enjoy a sense of belonging, are able to connect, contribute and flourish within their community.
There is a caring team who help build bridges in the community, fostering neighbourliness. Through local networks and meeting at the Hub, resources and furniture are re-used and shared. For newcomers we can provide a welcome pack with essential information. We have a craft and a cuppa session for an enjoyable morning out. For those in need, a food bank, advocacy and networking are available.
An energetic and caring team make welcome packs for newcomers and care packages in times of need. There is a foodbank for those in need. Finding tools, seedlings and seeds for gardens, furniture or clothing – donated and recycled. What ever our generous community gifts us, the Hub supports what a neighbour can do for a neighbour.
You can call in on the team Thursdays between 10am – 2pm at the Darfield Library or contact

We have newcomers packs to give away with valuable local information about activities, groups and contacts. If you are new or have a new neighbour, drop into the Hub or contact us.
Craft and a Cuppa
Enjoying craft work, a cuppa and a chat is a great way to spend the morning. You are welcome to bring a craft you are already doing, or to learn a craft from others or join in a group project. We meet at the Darfield Baptist Church fortnightly on a Thursday from 10am-noon during school term time. Children welcome. For more information contact us.
Many people benefit from the generosity and donations of food items and seasonal vegetables of the wider community. Pop in and see the ladies at the Hub if you have food to donate or donations of food can be dropped off at Trinity Church or the Darfield Baptist Church. Contact Rose on 027 532 4888 if someone you know is in need.
