Welcome to ISKCON Adelaide Volunteering. You will find a great choice of services for you to get involved with.
If you wish to volunteer for any of these services please contact the temple reception.
Say it all with flowers! Are you creative & artistic? Then making flower garlands for Their Lordships on the altar is one of the sweetest devotional services you can offer Them.
Our festivals also present the most beautiful flower arrangements and displays.
Food for Life
‘Food for Life’ goes out to feed the homeless and volunteers help to prepare and cook as well as serve from the van. This is a very engaging and rewarding service and this involves a very strong sense of team work. If you would like to get involved with the ‘Food for Life’ team please contact the temple reception.
Sunday Feast Volunteering
Volunteers will mainly involve in helping and preparing the Sunday Feast such as chopping of vegetables, cooking, cleaning, serving the feast in the temple room & restaurant, washing pots, cleaning the kitchen and restaurant after the feast.
The Sunday Feast’s Service teams are a great way to make friends and discover your Krishna Consciousness in a fun and spiritually rewarding way.
Please come and get involved…!
Assisting the pujaris involves general cleaning, food preparation, garland making and cleaning the deities’ paraphernalia..
Volunteers in this department are required to be following the four regulative principles and chanting Hare Krishna. Devotees should contact the pujaris in this regard.
Book distribution is one of the key activities at Adelaide temple. We require volunteers to distribute book for marathons, maha sankirtan or on an adhoc basis suited to your individual time. You can contact the Book Distribution department if you are interested in this activity.
Book distribution is one of the most important services of the the Krishna Consciousness movement. Srila Prabhupada stressed this service over any other service especially in this period of time. Please give some of your valuable time and get involved wholeheartedly.
Cleaning has always been a great part of Vaisnava culture and in this regard Srila Prabhupada once commented ‘Cleanliness is next to Godliness’. From kings to beggars everyone takes part in cleaning Krishna’s temple. Volunteers are always much appreciated and help is always needed to clean the kitchen, stairs, kitchen pots, temple room, and common areas. Cleaning service is available all day every day and please feel free to come and get involved. In Vaisnava culture simple menial service like this is respected as one of the most powerful ways to transcend the false ego and this also pleases Krishna and His devotees.
