As a church we are passionate about engaging with our city for the benefit of our city. It is our hope that our being in Joburg would have some impact on the city for the glory of God. A central outworking of the Gospel is “remembering the poor” (Gal 2:10). To this end we have been committed to two organisations for some time. We helped start a foundation called Philile, a family of pre-schools for the underprivileged in different areas of Joburg, as a primary engagement with the poor. We have also been in a long term support relationship with Yeoville Boys School, an inner city government school, where we assist on a number of fronts from assistance with feeding children through to reading and psychosocial professional interventions.
