Operation Reachout

Operation Reach Out

A ministry by the congregation to the congregation.


Our Roots

One of our congregation members had a serious accident in 2001, which left her severely injured. As a result, she had to undergo multiple operations. This accident and her inability to work for an extended period left her and her family with mounting medical bills, a major financial crisis and little food on the table. Some concerned friends thought it through and saw a greater need, not only for that family but for other members of our congregation.


What we do

Over the years Operation Reach Out made a shift in thinking and so as a church we no longer give food parcels but rather have moved on to giving those who need help a pre-loaded Pick ‘n Pay voucher. This gives individual the freedom to purchase specific food items as needed.


How can you help?

This ministry is possible through the generous giving of our congregation. If you can assist either on a regular or ad hoc basis you can do so either via EFT or by making use of the general Giving at St James envelopes.
