Home for Good South Africa

Arise, Adopt Love, and The Message Trust are hosting an afternoon of collaborative learning with Krish Kandiah President of the London School of Theology (www.lst.ac.uk) and Founder and Director of Home for Good (www.homeforgood.org.uk) a brand new charity mobilising the Church to care for vulnerable children through adoption and foster care.

On Saturday 27 September from 2-4 PM, Krish will be at the Arise Family Centre in Heideveld to share the Home for Good story and hear from the South African Church and learn from our experience. We are praying that from that conversation, we may be prompted to think together about how a similar movement might occur in our churches.

We are hoping for a small group of passionate and influential local leaders to participate in this informal conversation and would like to invite you to join us. Please do RSVP to info@arisecapetown.org.za so that we can prepare appropriately. You may already be thinking of someone else you would like to invite – please do so! Feel free to share this invitation with other key leaders in the Church who are passionate about seeing children in families. Just remember to help us by sending a quick RSVP to info@arisecapetown.org.za.

To reach Arise, it is generally best to exit the N2 at Duinefontein Road toward Heideveld, then take the first right into Ascension Road, the first right again before a Shell garage into Postern Road which bends 90 degrees, then the first right into Groenberg Road. We are immediately on the left at the first gate on the grounds of St. Thomas Church. The physical address is 68 Groenberg Road, Heideveld, if you will be using a GPS.

We are excited to see what God might accomplish through this gathering and what new networks and partnerships might form. Thank you for considering being a part of this event!

    Hi Krish

    Our friend in the UK, Rachel Divall, pointed us to your website. We’d love to say we’ll join you on 27th in Cape Town but we are exhausted by building work that has gone on for months at our home and then the sudden arrival of our little foster daughter 3 weeks ago. Right now we need to protect our space until things settle down so I don’t think we’ll make it.

    God bless what you are doing – there seems to be a real need for foster care resources in SA. I was amazed by the lack of response to our offers to foster a child and we went through an interesting process to get to where we did. Having got here we have not been offered much support so are just bumbling along in our own way and hopefully doing something right!

    Warm regards
