Street Ministry

Every week we reach out to the homeless living on the streets of Table View Cape Town, seeking to bring hope to the hopeless.

On a weekly basis, in conjunction with members from CRC Cape Town as well as volunteers, TLC engages in regular excursions into the streets of Blaauwberg to engage with the homeless.

Through this process, the street ministry instils hope, by praying, motivating and encouraging the individuals to reach out and join TLC’s Independent Living Program.
