As HIV/AIDS continues to ravage our local communities and 70% of the population are unemployed and living below the poverty line, it is our privilege as the body of Christ to reach out in love by helping those in need.

Kids background-1
NCF Community Projects target those communities that are in close proximity to the NCF Church sites in Edendale, Mooi River,Howick, Mpophomeni and Hilton.  There are already a number of established Ministries in place, as well as several  new, exciting initiatives in the pipeline.  All the COMMUNITY PROJECTS have the same objective ie to glorify Jesus as our Lord and Saviour by loving and caring in practical ways for the poor and needy, widows and orphans. Biblical teaching and spiritual encouragement accompany every Ministry.
