SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We exist to honour God by establishing Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered and socially responsible churches and campus ministries in every nation.
We believe that God is calling us to be a socially responsible church on personal, congregational and citywide levels.

CITY WIDE

Tshwalo House Baby Haven

In South Africa, there are an estimated 3,7 million orphans and 3500 babies are abandoned annually – with no hope of experiencing the love of their heavenly Father. The need is big, but we know an even bigger God who loves to redeem the most broken. As a socially responsible church, we as Every Nation Tshwane believe that God has given the mandate of “caring for the orphan” to His church, to every believer.

“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” James 1:27
We have affiliated with African Havens (Every Nation Johannesburg), drawing on their experience of more than 30 years, to establish Havens in Tshwane.

The Every Nation Tshwane Baby Haven wants to be the hands of Christ to touch, to heal and to bring wholeness to vulnerable children by providing a loving home and discipleship in the word, the presence and the power of God. We want to see children return to the joy of childhood. We want to be a beautiful part of the answer to Africa’s orphan crisis.

Tswalo House Baby Haven

We are excited to announce that we as Every Nation Tshwane are launching our first of many Baby Havens in Tshwane. Through the Baby Haven we as Christ church have the opportunity to partner with God to set the vulnerable in families and provide them the joy that their Heavenly Father provides. Our Haven will be a Cluster Foster Home, a family setup with 6 babies (aged 0-3 years ) with house parents supported by staff and volunteers. A baby haven provides a temporary safe home for abandoned, abused, and neglected babies until permanent placement is arranged.

CONGREGATIONAL

Through our congregations we have been involved in initiating and supporting many community projects and social responsibility initiatives since 2010.
We have endeavoured to mobilise volunteers, raise funds locally, supply training and resources, and through these engagements we have been able to support existing initiatives as well as starting new initiatives.

Lynnwood Projects

Peas in a pod

Peas in a pod is a Place of Safety in Arcadia, Pretoria for fifteen young girls who have fallen victim of gender-based abuse. Founder Dr. Annali Swanepoel aims to create a safe environment for these girls to heal and recover from the trauma that they have experienced.

Church members can make donations or get actively involved in these girls' lives. Donations vary from daily household-needs, toiletries, clothes or even monetary donations. Through donations we also contributed towards their building project. One of their needs is to add a room to the house. There are currently only two bedrooms for the 15 girls. The girls visit our church every second Sunday where they are part of the kids church and youth program. The housemothers attend our church services. Embrace a child is a special project where congregation members commit to take a girl out once a month and do something fun. There are 8 couples/individuals that are currently part of this initiative.

We believe each disciple of Jesus has a Biblical calling to care for the widow, the orphan, the poor, the foreigner and the oppressed in their personal capacity.
