Illawarra Thanks 2021


For the past nine years, Illawarra Prayer Breakfast has been carrying a heart for prayer, unity, and thanksgiving for churches in the Illawarra. As thanksgiving is one of our core values, each year we have had the privilege to align with the National Day of Thanks by giving awards to individuals on behalf of the Illawarra Prayer Breakfast. This year we are doing something different. We are going out - visiting organisations to say thank you on behalf of the churches of the Illawarra.  


Together for the Illawarra has consulted with a team of local churches in spirit of collaboration. We want to express our thanks and honour to some of our community professionals, volunteers and non-profit organisations in the Illawarra. We will be going out to the following organisations on the 28th and 29th May:

  • SAHSSI (Supported Accommodation & Homelessness Services Shoalhaven Illawarra)
  • WWIS (Wollongong Women’s Information Service)
  • Shellharbour Hospital 
  • Shellharbour Scouts 
  • Dr. Annette Beaufils - Helensburgh GP 


 “So how can you get involved?”


There are two ways you can support us this National Day of Thanks.



You can join a team to visit one of the above listed organisations as we extend our honour and thanks together on behalf of the Churches in the Illawarra. We really encourage you to get involved in the spirit of Thanks! Contact Heloisa on 0421 376 978 to choose which team you wish to participate in.





Together for the Illawarra would like to purchase a gift and a certificate of appreciation to the organisation

 You or your church can help by contributing $20 or $50 towards this gift.


To offer your churches support in either of these ways, please contact Heloisa on 0421 376 978 by providing details of how you choose to contribute.

We would love to see the fruits of thanksgiving in our community, especially to those who are constantly committing their personal best to the betterment of our community.


I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that was given you in Christ Jesus
