Churches in Action

WELKOM – Churches in Action Need your help!!
Churches in Action  provide meals to the homeless.  CIA was blessed with more than needed and decided to broaden the assistance provided to meet the tremendous need that was identified in our community. Individuals, businesses, and churches came together.
CIA is feeding approximately 500 people per day.  These meals are nutritious and of a remarkably high quality. Our volunteers collect the food and delivers it to every home.

Funds are limited and sponsors are difficult to find in the current economic situation South Africa but a decision was made that we would continue providing these vulnerable individuals as long as God provides the means.

City of Welkom
[Circle City]

Welkom is South Africa’s youngest city and has been the centre of the gold fields since 1947. The city sprung up after gold was discovered on a farm called St Helena.

Welkom has grown perhaps with a faster rate as Johannesburg, yet is proud of the fact that its traffic system of traffic circles were so well designed that they still have only a few traffic lights. It is in the Free State the second largest city and the core of the relatively recent geologic windfall of the Free State.

We’ve have partnered with the Small Business Institute to assist SMES with  information that they are unearthing that might be of help to small businesses during the Covid-19 emergency. Because things are moving so quickly, information is only emerging slowly as programmes and governance and distribution channels take time to develop. 

Stay safe, stay healthy. Stay in touch.

Our City History

A settlement was laid out on a farm named “Welkom” (which is the Afrikaans and Dutch word for “welcome“) after gold was discovered in the region, and it was officially proclaimed a town in 1948. The town became a municipality in 1961. The city now falls in the Matjhabeng Municipality, part of the Lejweleputswa District with a population of over 650 000 people. Welkom was officially declared a city on 14 February 1968.
