Throughout the Bible God’s people are commanded to care for those less fortunate than themselves. Often in the Old Testament we read that we are to care for the widow and the orphan, while in the New Testament we are commanded to treat our neighbour as ourselves, and our brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ as if we were helping Him.

Hebrews 6:10 says:
God will not forget the work you did or the love you showed for him in the help you gave and are still giving to other Christians.

Outreach Projects

Every year the Diaconate selects a project to support both financially and materially with goods collected at various services that take place during the year e.g. our birthday ‘Thanksgiving Service’. Also, any goods, books or clothing handed in at the office through the year, or left over from our Fete, is sorted and distributed to various Christian and welfare organisations.

Spiritual Outreach

We have members of the congregation who are available to come to your home and pray for you or for whoever is in need of prayer. Whether it be for physical, emotional or spiritual healing.


Groceries are collected each Sunday at our worship services. They are distributed at the discretion of the minister from the Church office. All contributions and donations are gladly accepted.

Benevolent Fund

The church has a Benevolent fund which is administered by the Minister. It is mainly used to help those who find themselves in short-term financial difficulties. A special collection is taken after every Holy Communion service for this purpose.

Huis Nuweland

The minister conducts a service of worship at Huis Nuweland, at 10:30am on the second Friday of every month.
Huis Nuweland is a home for retired persons, situated at 22 Sylvia Road, Claremont.

Ecumenical Outreach

There are various events and projects in which local churches co-operate to share the ‘Good News’ about our Lord Jesus Christ together. The collection at the following services go toward community projects.

Ascension Day

This takes place in the evening of Ascension Day, and is held in one of the participating Churches.

Carols by Candlelight

This takes place at the beginning of December, and is held in the grounds of one of the participating Churches.
