Maranatha began in 1975 as a Christian community, when two families, the Hawkes and the Johnsons, moved into a large house together. The Maranatha Foundation was established in collaboration with St. Hugh’s Anglican Church in Newton Park, to respond to a lack of “retirement” facilities in that suburb. In 1985 cottages were built on the extended plot, and the house was converted into a Frail Care home in 1988.

Maranatha Village comprises 17 one-bedroom cottages and 2 “studio” units. In 2008 Maranatha merged with MHA, who took over its assets and the management of the facilities. Maranatha Village is situated on Pickering Street, Newton Park, and the name Maranatha has biblical sources, and can be translated as “Come, O Lord”.
