Social Action seeks to effect and facilitate change in the lives of individuals, in families and in communities. Social Action recognises that the greatest need of mankind is to be reconciled with God. It also recognises that this need cannot be met in isolation. Social Action, therefore, adopts an integral approach and seeks to minister to the whole person i.e. physically, socially as well as theologically.
How do you do it?
Presently, Social Action operate a Food Bank. This Food Bank is accessed by Ministry Leaders and Home Group Group Leaders. In this way, we ensure that individuals and families are reached by a person with an authentic relationship to those in need. This ensures that all needs – not just physical needs – are met. Social Action also supply food to missionaries working at the coalface of Christian mission in Dublin city.
