On 26 June 2008, Under the late Archbishop Dr EMM Murerei ’s guidance, the church launched a Social Responsibility Programme. As part of the programme, the church visits Homes for the needy, Orphanages and those affected by HIV-Aids. Amongst the many homes that have been visited to date are Leamogetswe Children‘s home in Atteridgeville, Pretoria, Ethadweni Children ‘s Home in Soweto, Thohoyandou Children ‘s Home in Thohoyandou (Linpopo Province) the SOS Children Home in Mamelodi, Mabo Project in Klipgat and Kingdom Life Children ‘s homes in Saulsville, Pretoria and many more.
During the visits, church members spend the whole day playing and preparing food for the kids. They play soccer, netball, chess, karate and various other sporting codes. They also donate food parcels, clothes, blankets, toys, playing equipment for kids, etc. The Day is concluded with a sermon that is preferably led by an ordained Pastor.
This means that the UAAC walks the talk in the sense that the Word of God has to be put in practice to help resolve challenges that afflict humanity. Thus, love your neighbor as you love yourself, is not a mere cliché, but something that the people can witness being practiced.
For donations to this worthy cause, both the public and church members are urged to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or on our telefax +27 15 973 0906.
For the year 2021, our Outreach or Community responsibility day is Saturday 07 August 2021. The functions will take place in Gauteng, Free State, Mpumalanga, North West and Limpopo Provinces. We will visit homes of the needy and our daily activities will include preparing breakfast and lunch, cleaning the yard, laundry, fixing or mending equipment and cupboards, playing with inhabitants and donations of various items such as food parcels, clothes, school uniform, toiletry, sanitary towels, etc. Check our events schedule for details.
Community outreach to the needy is at the centre of the church doctrine. To this end, the church conducts social responsibility functions on an annual basis where food parcels, clothes, equipment and other items are offered to specific orphanages or homes of the needy. Sanctioned by the Archbishop, the services are conducted mainly in Limpopo, Gauteng and Free State Provinces. The church has also appointed a Minister of Welfare who coordinates all activities relating to its Community Outreach Program.
