of Christian Brethren
The Stewards' Foundation has been operating in NSW, and throughout Australia, assisting Christian Brethren Assemblies, and associated ministries, workers and members for over 40 years. It is a corporation constituted in NSW by the 'Stewards' Foundation of Christian Brethren Act 1989'. (read the Act)
Some of the services provided are:
- Deposits at commercial interest rates
- Loans to Assemblies for buildings or equipment
- Housing loans
- Retirement Villages
- Christian Schooling
- Disaster Relief Fund
The Foundation has involvement in a number of Christian Schools and currently operates 4 retirement villages. They are 'Craiglea' in Engadine, 'Kings Court' in Manly Vale, 'Lynden Grove' in Cardiff Heights, and the most recently built village, 'Glenhaven Gardens' (in Glenhaven) which was opened in late 2007, and is still being expanded. This village includes a 60-bed aged-care facility called 'Carinya House' which is operated for Stewards Foundation by Christian Brethren Community Services (CBCS) and was opened officially on 8 September 2007.
For more information about any of the above, or other projects in progress - please contact the Manager, Mr Philip Adams, during normal business hours. The office is open 9am to 5pm, 5 days per week. Ms. Faye Loudon and Mr Kevin Price assist in the office on a part-time basis.
Any member of an Assembly of Christian Brethren is entitled (and indeed positively encouraged!) to become a member of the Foundation upon application and payment of the annual fee of only $10. All members have a right to vote at general meetings of the Foundation and thereby influence its control and direction.
