The Body of Christ in action

Table Mountain

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly, defend the rights of the poor and needy.

Proverbs 31:8-9

Who is Straatwerk Non-Profit Organisation?

Straatwerk came into being in the late 1960s. Young people gathered on Friday evenings with a shared concern for those who were cast out by society, who were broken and in distress, and yearned to be loved. With a borrowed van, a tray of sandwiches and a primus stove, they went out and shared the love of Christ.

Today Straatwerk is a registered non-profit organisation with a strong evangelistic focus.

The ministry team of Straatwerk reflects the rich diversity of our country’s population and represents a range of different church denominations.
