27 years ago, a volunteer service began at the Family and Local Courts in Parramatta in reaction to a lack of support and positivity in places that both sought to resolve family disputes and misdemeanours of the law. A group was formed from local Churches in the area, to lend an ear, and a smiling face, and a hand of kindness by way of a cup of tea and a biscuit to those attending the Family Court and the local Court.
The support group are seeking the help of all churches to see if there are people who might like to be a Rostered Volunteer about three hours a month for serving tea and coffee at either or both of the courts. Choice of day or week of the month is available ie. 3rd Tuesday. Time is usually between 9am and 12.30pm. See the noticeboard for contact details.
