At the start of 2021, as we drove around and looked at the communities of George, one could see the incredible need for Jesus in peoples’ lives. With that said, the practical side of reaching these hundreds and possibly thousands of adults and children can seem like an impossible task..

The Blanket Drive for 2000 blankets

The Blanket Drive for 2000 blankets that Russel Barends has initiated in partnership with us and Eden FM is a great initiative for individuals, families, small groups and businesses to get involved. Summer is starting later and later in George and surrounds, and well it is still cold, we would love to bless these children who still arrive in shorts and ripped jerseys and no shoes to our food stations with a blanket to keep warm...

Our newsletter - Lockdown news

Our newsletter - Lockdown news

We approach a time when we literally “start coming out of our cocoon”, after the severe lock down on the 26th of March 2020. Many were affected, not so much directly contracting the virus, but with the devastation of fear it brought into the lives of people as well as the economic meltdown because of the lock down. The Lord graciously, miraculously sustained us as we DAILY experience His Intervention in the ministry.

A letter from the CEO

A letter from the CEO

We are all caught in the event called the Covid-19 virus Pandemic. For us at LIFE Community Services it is almost ethereal. You look around at staff who don’t quite understand but sense it’s serious but don’t know what to do? Children who have no concept but to be happy to have a longer holiday? Other people who meet, have coffee, visit, etc. as though it’s just another day?...

First day back at Life Christian Academy

2020 has started off with a blast and we now have 7 FULL classes! Four years ago we started with 13 grade 1 learners and one grade one class. Going into this year, we have two grade 1 classes, two grade 2 classes, two grade 3 classes and our one grade 4 class. Each of them are full, which make LCA filled to capacity with 175 learners. It was such a wonderful and blessed moment to see all the excited parents and first time learners dressed in their new school uniforms.

Mini-Olympics

Holiday Club June 2019

Holiday Clubs at LIFE are a vital programme that we run throughout school holidays with specific objectives in mind. Firstly, children and youth need a safe space during the day, off the streets and out of the evils that take place in the township communities where they live. Secondly, it is a wonderful opportunity to expose them to the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Games, Drama, Arts and Crafts and Life skills Education. Worship and Prayer, as well as Bible Teaching are the focus of the day.

Mini-Olympics

Mini-Olympics

The 1st of June was Life Community Services’ annual Mini Olympics. On this day, all the children who attend our Happy Feet pre-schools, LCA learners or our two early child development centres in Thembaletu come together to race in the different age groups. There were close on 500 children that participated and an audience of at least 350 adults plus family members to cheer the athletes. To complete the day of great fun, food and connections we had the mothers’ sprint followed by the fathers’ running. It is our desire to include as many as possible in the activities of the day. This event truly is a day that brings all walks of life together in unity.

Back to school

Back to school

Another remarkable event this term was our Back-to-School project, sponsored by Eden Church. Many children received all they needed for their school: Back-packs and stationary. The thanksgiving afterwards has been overwhelming from carers and children.
