This year to raise funds for our Christmas for the Homeless feeding – we are holding a car boot sale. If you would like to participate please speak to Donna at HCC. All the details are on the pamphlet above.
Christmas for the Homeless
18th December 2019 to 10th January 2020
Over the month of December / January all the feeding ministries in Pinetown close. HCC church then runs a feeding outreach for that period. We will be feeding on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. 7:00am to 8:30am.
We give the homeless a bowl of porridge, cup of coffee and 4 slices of bread with a spread. On the 25th December and 1st January we would like to give them a bunny chow. Last year we averaged 150 homeless people a day over that period. What we are needing to make this all possible are the following food items:-
- Sugar 11 x 10kg
- Butter spread 11 x 1 kg Tubs
- Rama 10 x 1kg Blocks
- Coffee 3 x Big Tins
- Milk 84 liters
- Bread 700 Loaves – 70 loaves a day
- Peanut Butter 6 x 1kg
- Jam 9 x 3kg
- Beef / Chicken for the bunnies

Having this time to share and bring dignity to people who need it – blessed us more. We realize there are many people who have a love for the lost. Having this opportunity to share the love of Christ and be his hands and feet to the homeless in Pinetown has also shown us the immense need for the communities help. Make a difference this Christmas and get involved.
Last year we also fed many people in Matala Heights with the over flow of food. Out hope is that it will continue this year.
Water Tank Project
We are collecting money for the Water Tank Project. HCC has partnered with us in our vision to bring change. HCC are based right near a taxi rank and many of the homeless people are walking about 2 km to get water to wash the taxis for a fee. We want to install JoJo tanks for Rain Water Harvesting for internal use as well as assisting the homeless who wash the taxi’s. In return we believe we will get them to start keeping their area clean. This all takes time and relationship building.
Shelter in Pinetown
We are looking for a building that will provide a shelter for the homeless in the Upper Highway. Change comes when people know they are loved and cared for. When we have this shelter we believe this is where we can offer teaching and get to know the potential in people. Our desire is to see addictions broken through the power of Jesus and see testimonies come from these restored lives.
