Midlands Christian Centre comprises of many in-reach and outreach ministries. These ministries supernaturally “sprung forth” over the years that Pastors Dermot and Glenda lead the work. The outreach ministries are as follows:
Our pre-school has been a school of choice for the community of Estcourt for more than 25 years. Situated in a lovely setting with safety been uppermost, ECA Pre-School offers ECD education at a professional level. The staff at the school are committed to excellence.
ECA Grades 1-12
At Estcourt Christian Academy we desire to build in students a life-long burning passion to learn and grow spiritually. It is one thing to want children to be successful and quite another to provide the academic and character training to ensure this accomplishment.
We believe in imparting excellence into all areas of the learners lives and this is evident in the classroom environment. Each classroom is equipped with an air conditioner as well as carpeted floors. One of our classrooms is also equipped with “Yteach” and this technology enables the learners to enjoy an interactive learning experience.
Whether the student is a high achiever, a moderately paced learner, or a slow learner, our curriculum process begins at the exact level determined by the child’s ability. This individualisation makes it possible for each student to master the subject matter before moving on. Such mastery is the foundation upon which all future learning is built.
Fountain of Life and Dayspring Crèche
FOL Pre-School and Grade R and ECD (Early Childhood Development) Training from the Step-by-Step Curriculum and Grade R runs on the ACE (Accelerated Christian Education) Missions and Pre-School programme to prepare the children for Grade 1.
FOL has become an educational resource centre providing Step-by-Step training to adults, as well as other courses. There are currently 80 children at FOL receiving an excellent Christian education. Over the years, both parents and grandparents of the children have received spiritual ministry and practical help.
Greystone Campsite has been developed as part of the vision of the Midlands Christian Centre. As well as being ideal for camping, there is an adventure centre, “Challenge for Champions”, which is equipped for leadership and team-building courses.
To date, approximately 3500 school children are reached at camps each year, plus there are other camps, e.g. church groups, youth groups, etc.
Orphanage – Ikhaya Lethu
Towards the end of 2001 a property was purchased in Colenso, which has been renovated and developed as an orphanage and care centre, “Ikhaya Lethu” (Zulu for “Our Home”), and which was dedicated to the Lord in November 2001.
100 children are being cared for at Ikhaya Lethu, which is registered for this number.
