Christians are answering their higher calling by ringing up elderly people in self-isolation and chatting with them over the phone to ease the pangs of loneliness.
Generocity Church lead pastor Tash Eagle said her congregants were more than willing to offer some friendship and comfort to older people who are stuck at home all alone.
"We've heard there are people in isolation who don't have family here and can go for days without even chatting to somebody," Mrs Eagle said.
"We just want to jump on the phone, say hi, touch base with them regularly and keep in contact so they don't feel that they're alone."
A veritable flock of church-goers have put their hands up to be the kind voice on the other end of the line, including 12-year-old Abbie Staines who is self-isolating from school.
Another is nurse Natalie Ellis who, despite her hectic schedule, is determined to set aside time in her day to lend a sympathetic ear to elderly people in need.
"We all need our other hats - helping people is what I do for a profession and as an interest," Mrs Ellis said.
Pastor Luke Eagle said this was their modern solution to reaching out to people in the age of coronavirus.
"Our mandate is to spread the love of Jesus, so even if we can't meet with people why can't we spread that love over a phone call?" Mr Eagle said.
"Jesus came to give people hope and a future, and we can give people hope even if they can't meet us here."
Residents who know an elderly person can nominate them by messaging the Kooringal Generocity Church Facebook page.
