Christ Church Kenilworth / Kenilworth Community Action Network


There has been an outpouring of support for the St John’s Love your Neighbour campaign, the Mercy Fund and for our various partner organisations such as Bettaway, U-Turn and PHA  - thank you!

How does the food parcel programme work?
  • Every Wednesday and Saturday mornings specific food items can be dropped at Callow House (the Youth Centre opposite the Church) between 9am and 10.30am
  • Food items can also be dropped into the trolley at Kenilworth Centre Woolworths and Woolworth, Main Road Kenilworth.  These will be collected twice a week
  • Parcels will be made up and delivered on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons
  • Parcels will only be given to residents living in Kenilworth. This will not be for the homeless in our area – U-Turn currently have feeding programmes in place
  • KCAN will manage both the assessment and the list of those families requiring help
  • Other Kenilworth churches partner with us and KCAN
  • We will assess regularly whether to continue with the programme
  • Di Hewitson will ensure we are following strict hygiene protocols
How can you get involved?
  • Donate food items (refer to the list below). Bring these to Callow House either Wednesday or Saturday mornings between 9am and 12noon.  If you cannot drop off during these times we can make another arrangement for drop off or collection  (email If you live in the Kenilworth/Wynberg area, or if you live in Claremont/Rondebosch or beyond email
  • Volunteer your time – Thanks so much we have had a huge response so no more volunteers needed.
  • Spread the word, especially if you are a Kenilworth resident. Keeping this going requires much energy and on-going generosity
  • If you prefer to give a cash donation for the team to purchase the items, use the Christ Church Bank details.
