St. Augustine’s supports a number of outreach projects, both hands-on and financially. These include working with refugees, visiting residents in the long-term care facility at the Hildastift care home, preparing breakfasts and currently also packed lunches (as one of many participating churches) and a Christmas Eve brunch for the Teestube, a day centre for homeless people, supporting projects in Romania (financially, with Christmas boxes, and soon again hands-on during a mission trip), and with financial help for the NdiMoyo palliative care centre in Malawi. We also work with the Christian charity EuroRelief as they help the many refugees arriving and stranded in Greece.
Matthew 25: 37-40
“Lord, when was it that
We saw you hungry and gave you food?
We saw you thirsty and gave you something to drink?
We saw you a stranger and welcomed you?
We saw you sick and took care of you?
We saw you in prison and visited you?
‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’ ”
As a city centre church, we attract visitors who need concrete help or individual financial support that we cannot always provide. In many cases, however, we can help by referring them to an appropriate institution or organisation, such as one of the organisations listed here: SOCIAL SERVICES WIESBADEN.
