The aim and purpose of the Care Ministry is to love and care for those in need in our church community. It takes many forms, and many are involved in various ways to show love and care e.g. phoning/visiting the sick, comforting those who have experienced loss, making and distributing masks, knitting beanies for the children in Diepsloot, meals for the sick, pamper packages, and of course lots of prayer.
HeronBridge Community Church understands that as the Body of Christ we are called to look after, care for and provide for those who may be struggling.
Upskill HCC aims to reduce poverty in our immediate church community where unemployed or under-employed people can be trained in skills so that they can create items for sale, or start small businesses. The application form is available here. It is also available as a Google Form.
Project220, which was launched during Lockdown, now falls under care. Project220 strives to provide monthly meal packs of nutritious non-perishable food items that may be given to those families or individuals in our church community who are in need.
Should you wish to fill our food parcel pantry, please donate items in the Project220 food parcels. The list of items we need is here.
Donations can also be dropped off at church on Sundays, or with Mandisa Makasi at HeronBridge College, Cottage 9.
Another initiative we have is Second Chance. Donations of second hand clothing can also be dropped off with Mandisa, or brought to church. These clothes are sorted and bundled for re-sale, but we always first and foremost give to any church members in need. Those who receive bundles for re-sale i.e. those who are unemployed or informally employed, sell the items and tithe from their sales.
