What we do
The STAR model helps churches and organisations work together to deliver appropriate support for those affected by addiction.
Delivered through the STAR Life Course, STAR Academy, STAR-approved centres and partnerships, our carefully designed framework ensures these STAR communities operate with confidence and knowledge in an area of ministry that needs professional insight.
With courses, resources and support, accessing STAR can help you support your own recovery, those around you, or your own community.
The way STAR has helped me, it’s made me appreciate the struggles and storms that everyone around us has, and it’s encouraged to be humble in serving refreshments and having open ears to hear everyone’s stories. It’s been a touching experience and reminded me that we don’t have to have it all perfect in life, and with the right people we can heal from our wounds, no matter how complex or deep they may be. It’s helped me discover how the answers to our healing can be within us or next to us and all it requires is a little awareness. It’s helped me be more aware and understanding of the situations. Without a doubt, I felt God’s love and patience through the healing, and I love how everyone supports each other in the steps towards the healing. Deeply appreciate you leading the course with a heart of vulnerability and humility. God Bless you.
