As a SUFM Theos mission, we run in a cafe-style setting known as 'Solid Rock Café' aiming to reach people, particularly young people, with the good news about Jesus Christ by building relationships with locals and holiday makers in Port Macquarie, NSW.

As a team member you will experience the following:
- Prayer, singing and learning from God’s Word, as well as meeting in small groups and reflection time.
- We go out to the beaches, town, skate park, and other areas to invite people to the café at night, and begin building relationships.
- At night, we run the Solid Rock Cafe in tents near the beach. People come to the café to chat, hang out and listen to live music. Team members share their testimonies where we seek to present the difference that Jesus makes,
and aim to have conversations about Jesus with the people who come into the cafe.
