Caring Hands encompasses all of our ministries that provide social action and practical support to local people. Our desire is to reach out to individuals and families with caring hands, showing the love of God through our actions and empowering people to live life well.
‘You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Matthew 5:14-16 NIV
