REACHING out to the public and sharing the message of love and caring is the aim of the Holy Trinity Anglican Church, whose Market Day will be held on Saturday, December 1 in Hillcrest.

The market is being held to raise funds to underwrite the Church’s support of charities and community projects.

The theme for the day is “Outreach” under the goal of “Reaching out to other parishioners and the wider Hillcrest community”.

Holy Trinity Anglican Church parish councillor Jenipher Lavender explained that the main reason they are having the Market Day is to reach out as a church to the community, saying: “We are doing this in order to show the people who think they are abandoned that there are people who still care and love them no matter what, also they are willing to do everything possible to help them better their situation.”

Church warden Toni Hanrahan said that, as part of their ministry work, they try and help the unemployed.

“The church is doing everything possible to try and fight unemployment, which is why we are doing this so that we will be able to take them to where they are supposed to be,” she said.

Lavender said funds raised on day would be distributed to different NPO’s that they support. These include The Diocesan Orphanage, 1 000 Hills Community Helpers, Fulton School of the Deaf, Hillcrest Advice Bureau, Hillcrest Aids Centre Trust, Zikwanele House of Hope and Hillcrest Government Hospital.

To conclude, Lavender encouraged the community to come and support the Market Day as it will make a huge difference to the people they are raising funds for.
