Love Our City is a vehicle through which we pursue the mandate to live in a just way that honours God.


He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you?



Love Our City partners with schools throughout the city, with a specific focus on those situated in disadvantaged and low socio-economic communities. We extend support in various ways, to address the specific needs of the schools and contribute to improving the quality of education they can offer to their students. This aims to have a broader impact or ripple effect on the surrounding community.

Neighbourhood Projects

Love Our City has identified several challenges in our immediate surroundings which are in need of intervention. Initiatives have been set up to support the elderly, clean-up efforts in the surrounding greenbelt and river areas and maintenance and support of community infrastructure.


The Love Our City Community Closet provides clothing items donated by our community to those in need, from or connected to the NCCB campus through various partnerships and relationships.

What Moves You?

The Love Our City “What Moves You?” campaign looks at how we as the NCCB community can move with compassion. The aim is to engage and equip individuals on our campus with a lifestyle of living for the benefit of others. Archbishop Tutu captured it best when he said “Compassion is not just a benevolent feeling but seeking to change the situation. Frequently people think compassion and love are merely sentimental. No! They are very demanding. If you are going to be compassionate, be prepared for action!” We see in the scriptures a call to justice, a call to move with compassion and not just have that tugging of the heart, but to let it trigger action.
