Every year in the first week of the June / July school holidays, Common Grounders get involved in a number of different ministry initiatives in Cape Town and beyond. It is our heart to see as many people as possible going along to serve and bless these different ministries and churches.

Common Ground will be running a three day
holiday programme for +- 250 young children in the rural KwaZulu Natal
area. Every day will be action-packed with various activities, including
plays, crafts and songs as we love and bless these mostly
underprivileged kids. Due to the distance between Cape Town and
Empangeni, this would be a great opportunity for you to serve if you are
a student originally from Natal.

Every year Common Ground sends a team of
guys and girls to the southernmost tip of the continent, Cape Agulhas,
to run a week-long holiday club for +/- 120 underprivileged children.
Our aim is to support and bless a pastoral couple who leads a small
church group of people in the area. We will also join in and be a part
of their church meeting on the Sunday. Most people in the community
