Mid Year Ministry Week


Printable version

Once a year in the first week of the June/July school holidays we have four exciting ministry outreaches running simultaneously, to create space for as many Common Ground youth, young adults and families as possible to get involved in 'going'. This year we will see teams go to Lesotho, Agulhas, the Garden Route and we host our very own Common Ground Children's holiday club.

Please make sure to contact the relevant leader, to sign up for a trip as soon as possible.  You can also sign up for your chosen holiday club at the involvement desk after the meetings on Sundays. Each team will have planning and preparation meetings in the weeks leading up to the trips, so make sure that you contact the team leader and get information for these planning meetings.

Lesotho Children's Holiday Club

We are working in partnership with Zoe Bible Church in Maseru to run a four day children's holiday club for about 200 children from the area. We need a team of about 25 people to help run this program and have fun blessing these children. We will depart Cape Town early on Friday the 27th of June and return to Cape Town by late Saturday the 5th of July. Costs: +/-R1700. Please contact Ryan for further details.

Agulhas Children's Holiday Club

We are working in partnership with Peter and Clemi, who run a weekly outreach program for children from the very poor fishing village just outside Agulhas, to run a four-day children holiday program. This team will depart on Saturday 28th of June and return on Friday the 4th of July. Costs: +/- R800. Please contact Lauren van Jaarsveld for further details.
