Social Mission Team
‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’ - Matthew 25:40
The Church Social Mission Team actively reaches out to those who are in need of assistance – these are our brothers and sisters who have ‘slipped through the cracks’ of existing social aid or due to the situation they are in, need additional aid or emergency assistance whilst they await receipt of aid from social service agencies.
Potential beneficiaries either contact the Church directly or are referred to us by Church Ministries or other social service agencies including Shelters.
The Social Mission Team interviews all potential beneficiaries to assess their eligibility for aid. This is to ensure we not only take the right action for the beneficiary but also to be a responsible steward for Church funds.
We are a team that aims to address the multifaceted needs of each beneficiary, showing them the face of Christ as we journey with them. Financial assistance is but one aspect of aid. Providing mentoring and companionship is another aspect of the assistance we give. By befriending each of our beneficiaries on a one -to-one basis, our team is able to ascertain the beneficiaries’ needs more holistically and help them to navigate the various assistance schemes that may be available to them.
