Causes

City Life Causes was launched in 2012 to encompass all of our social outreach activities. Through Causes we partner with existing initiatives to reach out to the poor, the sick and the outcast.

Our involvement gives us the privilege to sometimes introduce Jesus into their lives, to get involved with people personally and to provide financial support.

El Roi Baby Home

The El Roi Baby Home opened in October 2012 in conjunction with the Refilwe Community Project. It provides abandoned babies with a loving, safe, healthy and stable home as they travel the road to permanent placement in Forever Families. The adoption process is facilitated by Abba Adoptions.

The house was zoned to care for babies from birth up to 3 year olds and was initially home to 6 children. In less than 2 years their capacity doubled with the help of the community, local churches and donors around the world.

Today a team of local and international "aunties" work together to give 12 babies loving care around the clock.

Green Light

City Life Causes has partner with the Green Light Project by Oasis, who reaches out to the Precious Hearts Crèche in Diepsloot as well as the sex-workers in Randburg. Partnering with Oasis enables us to help care for these women and children whilst helping them to find meaning in their life as they discover the love of Jesus.

The cast-away community of Schomfeti is built around a brothel and is home to about 300 adults and children. These children are exposed to a harsh environment and other dangers such as sex trafficking on a daily basis. The Precious Hearts Crèche was built in 2011 and is open daily to provide the children with a safe haven, a healthy meal and a basic education, such as English, reading and writing. City Life Church helps to protect and care for these children by paying the crèche worker’s salary and transport as well as feeding them.

The Greenlight project also reaches out to ladies in Randburg who are working in the sex trade. Their goal is to educate these ladies about the dangers and risks of commercial sex work. With their help the girls are educated on the prevention of HIV, how to make better choices and take better care of themselves. Twice a month, the girls of City Life Church and Randburg get together to share the love of Jesus in a very practical way with some girl talk, good food and great laughs - an all round fresh infusion of hope in their lives.
