HOC at Rhema

We have more than 60 food programmes located in various disadvantaged areas in Gauteng.  These food programmes are run by our congregation members and home group leaders. Our food programmes coordinator, collects food from various stores e.g. Woolworths, Spar, home industries and re-distributes it to the various areas.

We partner with individuals, schools, and organisations in formal and informal settlements to address poverty and hunger.

We have made significant changes to the way that we help others because of Covid. In order to minimize exposure to the virus and to observe all protocols we are now able to send e-vouchers to a person’s cell phone which is redeemable at a retail chain. This has proved to be effective and efficient and we are also funding many of our food programs and poverty alleviation assistance in this way. We may even continue using this new system after the pandemic.

If you have any contacts in the food industry, kindly email us at hocsecretary@rhema.co.za.

Meals are provided and Bible studies are held daily at the church for people living on the streets.  Counselling and assistance are given to anyone in need. 

Our Food and Clothing Depot receives clothing and food from our congregation members and others which in turn are distributed to people who need it.

Blanket drive for Mandela Day: Winters in Gauteng can be harsh, especially for the homeless and those living in shelters. We put our faith into action by providing thousands of blankets to the poor and vulnerable in celebration of Mandela Day each year. Each blanket is a reminder to someone that God loves them. If you would like to join us in honouring Madiba’s legacy by helping others, please contact hocsecretary@rhema.co.za.

Emergency Rooms are set aside for overnight accommodation at the church (cnr Hans Schoeman and Rabie Streets, Randpark Ridge, Randburg).

We provide access to shelters through our networks.                                                                                                                                      

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God. (Romans 8:28)
