BRINGING THE HOPE OF JESUS TO PEOPLE WORKING IN THE SEX INDUSTRY IN SYDNEY
StreetLight is a group of local people who seek to provide friendship and support for women in Sydney’s sex industry.We love Jesus and this motivates us to reach out in kindness and acceptance to a group of people often stigmatised and discriminated by the general community.We believe every single person is precious, valued and created by God for a purpose. We want the women we meet to know that this is true for them too.We want the women to know that they are loved and worthy.Often the local church is seen to be condemning towards people who work in the sex industry. This is not the Jesus we know. We want to change this image of the church and let the women we meet come to know Jesus as we know Him – someone who loves them deeply, cries when they are hurting, heals broken hearts, wants only the best of lives for them.
StreetLight teams regularly visit women working in Sydney’s sex industry. Our primary desire is to build relationships and offer support and care for these women.
We also support and provide training for churches to start their own ministries to people who work in the sex industry in their local area.
