FAIR HAVEN MEMBERSHIP
Our Fair Haven Hostel and Retirement Village has shown over the years of its existence that it has been a wonderful place for our parents and grandparents to be cared for during the ‘twilight’ of their life on earth. This care is particularly evident in the Hostel. Our elderly brothers and sisters all express their thankfulness that they live in Christian surroundings with brothers and sisters of the same faith.
This is only made possible through your prayers, financial as well as voluntary support and as such, the Free Reformed Retirement Village Association (Inc.) is always on the lookout for new members.
The association is a not-for-profit organisation that relies on the financial support of its members. It is an organisation made up solely of members from the Free Reformed Churches of Australia and their sister churches abroad. The minimum re-current donation is presently $23.00 per week for full membership and $11.50 per week for pensioner/student membership. Payment may be made either by electronic transfer, cash or cheque placed in an envelope available in each church building and deposited in the appropriate box. Payments may be made either weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually.
If you are not yet a member, we encourage you to join our association sooner rather than later so that the care for our loved ones may continue.
“Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God”
