Every Tuesday all year round at our Discovery Campus and every Saturday throughout winter at our Cosmo City Campus. All those attending are blessed with soup and bread.
School going children attend the homework room at our Cosmo City Campus, Monday to Thursday during school terms. Homework is done and the children are fed.
Sponsor a Child
Your monthly donation sponsors a nursery or school going child in either Cosmo City or Plot 8. They are gifted with uniforms, stationery, toiletries and sporting goods during the course of the year.
Our food pantries give food parcels to those in need both in our congregation and families in the communities we serve.
Community Outreach Programmes
Collection and distribution of blankets, beanies and scarves in winter. A teddy bear drive to children in the nursery schools we support. The Christmas party and gift drive to children and nursery schools we support.
Every Tuesday, all year round, those less fortunate, mostly homeless, come to our Discovery Campus soup kitchen. They partake in praise and worship with a message from one of our pastors who volunteer their time to preach to these people in need.
After the short service they are served soup and buttered bread. There are also opportunities to gift the attendees with clothing, bibles, blankets or food hampers when they have been donated to us.
We have served 1567 people in the last 6 months!
We also run a soup kitchen at our Cosmo City Campus every Saturday during our winter months. This is manned and provided for by volunteers from our congregation. Volunteers bring soup, buttered bread and oranges that are served to the community at our Campus. We have also been fortunate enough to gift scarves, beanies and blankets during to attendees during this time.
1752 Community members attended the 2015 Cosmo Soup Kitchen!
One of our most valuable projects is our Homework Room run from our Cosmo City Campus.
School going children attend the homework room, Monday to Thursday during school terms. We are blessed to partner with Oasis who have a wonderful programme for school leavers who want to give back to the community and they give their time in the afternoons to help the children with their homework. There is a short quiet time where the children listen to a bible story and pray and then continue with their homework. All homework must be signed off before a child can leave for the day. Each child is given a sandwich, orange or apple and some juice every day.
We can accommodate 100 children daily!
SPONSOR A CHILD
Every year we look for sponsors to give a monthly donation for a nursery school or school going child in Cosmo City or Plot 8.
Your sponsorship for the nursery school children goes toward the monthly school fees for the children and a Christmas Party at the end of the year.
We are aware of some of these children that if they do not attend nursery school could be left alone at home when their guardian manages to find peace work. It is so important to get these little ones into nursery school where they are loved, fed and taught in preparation for school.
The student funds are used to gift the children with a summer school uniform and stationery at the start of the year and a winter uniform midyear and access to the homework room on a daily basis (includes lunch). There are also sports, toiletry and food parcels during the year.
There is a great need in these communities to ensure children receive the necessary clothing, equipment and food to ensure that they can concentrate on their studies and not be worried about these needs.
If you would like to sponsor a child please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our food pantries provide food parcels to those in need both in our congregation and families in the communities we serve. We rely solely on donations in order to meet the needs of those less fortunate.
The food parcel contains enough food for a family of 4 for a week. We would love to see everyone in the congregation donating an item every month to keep our pantry stocked. You can assist by downloading & printing the attached list. Then take the list with you when you go shopping, put an item or two into your trolley and drop it off at Connect Central or into the Orange Bins at Randburg and Discovery.
