Ministries

Our community is a home where together we grow in faith, reach up to God in worship and reach out to the community at large. 

Our ministries reflect this through our children’s programmes, care groups, community groups and investment into mission fields.

U-turn homeless support

We assist this ministry by purchasing vouchers online or at the U-Turn store on Imam Haran Road. Vouchers provide more than food and clothing, they are tickets to support and rehabilitation services for a journey to employment. Each pack contains 4 vouchers and costs R50.00

Children’s Church 

The property at 32 Markham Road, Claremont has, as early as 1927,  been used to share the gospel with children from the community. We endeavour to continue that tradition. We are grateful for our dedicated teachers: Romi Matthews, Abigirl Matsheza and Arthur Chikware who continually encourage our children to grow their faith. Our teenagers are urged to exercise their ministry skills and can often be seen at the church entrance handing out gifts and bible verses or assisting teachers in the classroom.

Breadtags for Wheelchairs

The breadtags that we collect are delivered to a depot in Ottery. The money obtained from recycling these plastic tags helps to purchase wheelchairs for those less fortunate than ourselves.

Scripture Union

Singiwe meaning “We are with you” is a program run at 10 Langa Schools by 5 individuals. Two of these energetic soldiers of God came to share their vision with us on Sunday. Rev Bongani Tshwili was accompanied by his lovely wife, Pearl and his SU associate, Omega Dube.

Scripture Union has collaborated with ‘Arise’ for children and families to create a Life Skills Program called ‘Heroes for Hope’. 

Your contribution of R250.00 would assist one child to participate in this extremely beneficial Life Skills program.
