COMPASSION & JUSTICE


Bringing hope to the vulnerable


Oversight of the GPCJ

We believe that as we are transformed by God’s grace, we must engage in issues of compassion and justice, bringing God’s hope and light to the most vulnerable. The GCPJ is led by six leaders (non-staff) along with our CJ Coordinator (staff member) as well as a senior minister. The team is mandated to proactively look at ways in which to grow justice/service work within the church while at the same time being responsible for the available resources at the churches disposal.

Our mandate & vision

  • To proclaim Good News to the poor
  • To bring hope to the broken hearted
  • To seek justice for the oppressed
  • To proclaim God’s grace for all

10% of the income received at Gracepoint is set aside for Compassion and Justice but we are always needing extra and we spend time building relationships to be able to supplement, enhance and give expression to the mission at hand. This is more than just about funding, it is primarily about building relationships and connecting community.

Project pillars

Gracepoint’s Compassion and Justice projects into four pillars, namely:

  • Prison ministry
  • Compassion and relief
  • Education, and
  • Economic empowerment

This structure is not only designed to assist in management and review of projects, but aims to ensure the optimal amount of idea sharing and to ultimately ensure that the leaders and volunteers receive the type and amount of support that they require.

Give to the needy


An active faith requires more than belief, or assent. We demonstrate that belief in the way we live our lives. Through community service and humanitarian projects we can serve others and help them understand how we follow Christ.

Areas of involvement

Gracepoint is involved in roughly 20 projects. While many of these are essentially projects that Gracepoint is primarily responsible for, we also have a number of partner and affiliate projects, where other organisations are primarily responsible and Gracepoint merely plays a supporting role, by for example assisting with resources and volunteers. Click here for more detailed information on the projects below…

July is Justice Month, which presents a wonderful opportunity for us to remember to keep putting our Faith into Action!

There are a number of events to take note of, including: 2 evenings of Crucial Conversations on 11th & 18th July, around issues that effect us all! As well as a community visit to Leewukop Prison Staff on the morning of the 18th, a Family Fun Run on Saturday 28th, to raise money, as well as drilling a borehole for the community in Itsoseng.
