Violence against women and children is the second pandemic in South Africa. 91% of South Africans don’t have internet data.
For this reason and for the very first time, we took our safety workshop into our communities in Bloemfontein, Pretoria and Johannesburg, continuing to teach women to take responsibility for their own safety during October.
350 women attended our workshop and were empowered, equipped and ministered to with 79 souls saved. This is only the beginning of empowering our communities.
As a church we are proactive! We had 2658 ladies attending our CRC Safety Workshop as 17 of our CRC locations connected online. We equipped our CRC Women to take responsibility and be part of the solution as we discussed key social issues and needs like gender-based violence, suicide, and rape!
Through this workshop, 177 ladies also gave their lives to JESUS!
The purpose of our #CRCCares Winter Drive was to uplift thousands of people in our communities by handing out canned food, blankets and winter clothes, while preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ! We distributed over 14840 cans, 1376 blankets and 726 large bags filled with gently worn clothes!
Throughout the month of September and October #CRCCares visited 25 crèches in Bloemfontein, Pretoria and Johannesburg reaching over 665 children, ministering to them about God’s creation and teaching them about their country!
Every child matters! And every child should have the opportunity to learn in a safe and stimulating environment. We are committed to seeing the next generation changed for Jesus Christ.
CRC Churches from across the country came together as part of our Operation CRC Cares special project, to help alleviate the pain and suffering caused by the looting and destruction in KZN and Gauteng.
Thousands of volunteers, partners, members and staff came together for four weeks, receiving, sorting and packing millions of rands worth of non-perishable items, packing thousands of boxes and filling 15 interlink trucks with essential food items to assist those most in need across KZN and Gauteng.
We kicked off 2021 with our Hospital Restoration Project, and shared the Gospel to 29 hospitals and 10 clinics all over South Africa handing out treat bags so that we could reach out and minister to over 11 620 patients, hospital staff and healthcare workers!! We saw over 260 people give their lives to Jesus, giving people hope and many got planted in CRC! This is only the start! We will see 7 million souls saved in 7 years!
During the month of August, we kicked-off women’s month with our Walking in Her Shoes initiative, highlighting the issues and challenges facing women in society, creating awareness as we tackle gender-based violence, rape, abortion, marital problems, abuse and poverty.
In honour of #WomensMonth we distributed over 6000 #CRCCares boxes and during these outreaches over 2475 people gave their lives to Jesus! All of this in just one month! People are receiving hope and restoration as we do our part as the Church in our communities!
As a Church, we have pledged to fight poverty, restoring dignity to those who are hurting and suffering. Each month, we provide monthly food packages to hundreds of people in need.
We continue to distribute 150 000 cups of soup at 70 sites across Bloemfontein, Pretoria and Johannesburg a month!!! The church is the light! The church is the answer! The need truly is great and the hour is urgent! Let’s arise and shine!
Together, we have raised more than R8.1 million for the RUCC building project of Pastors Don and Nomsa Phillips! We truly are blessed to be a blessing!
