Opportunity Shop


The Opportunity Shop has been in operation for a great number of years in the parish hall.

This is our mission to the community of Ballarat and surrounding areas. We have forwarded spectacles and typewriters to overseas communities through Ballarat organisations.

We endeavour to keep the prices of our clothing, furniture and nick-knacks to a very affordable level thereby helping the community of Ballarat from all walks of life, the opportunity to enjoy our op shop with very little outlay.

We join with Anglicare Ballarat in supplying clothing and furniture to some of their clients at no cost, thereby helping them to some quality of life.

Our staff is made up of volunteers consisting of men and women, serving, unpacking and pricing of donations, keeping the shop clean and if possible tidy.

We also have the men of the parish delivering and picking up goods, and having many trips to the tip each year.

This is a very worthwhile and enjoyable experience for all the volunteers.
