Vision Impact Giving

Vision Impact Giving (VIG) is our ‘over and above’ regular giving for special projects. Each year we prayerfully select two to three projects that make a difference in people’s lives and contribute to our church vision moving forward.  Over the years many exciting and life changing projects have been supported both in New Zealand and throughout the world. Over the last 13 years more than $1million has been raised through VIG.

How VIG Works

Around October each year we share the VIG projects we are seeking to support. We encourage people to give what they can, whether it’s $20 or $20,000. Giving closes at the end of the financial year on 31 March.

Payments will be administered by RCC’s Treasurer and can be transferred to:

› RCC Bank Account: 010819–0036589–00 
› Reference: Your Name VIG

If you have any questions please ask Phil Stedman, RCC's Treasurer Mark Styles or any Trustee.

VIG projects for 2022

  • Combating poverty in Northern Thailand

    Building on our La Mai coffee connection, we have to opportunity to fund a project improving water resources and sanitation in northern Thailand – an area that some of our short term mission teams have visited. We will partner with the Integrated Tribal Development Foundation (ITDF) who work long term with hill tribe peoples to end poverty and bring hope through holistic and practical development.
    ITDF supports the construction of clean drinking water systems and bathrooms/latrines to assist in the prevention of water and soil borne diseases. The availability of water resources also provides communities an opportunity to increase agricultural yields, as well as set up fishponds where space is available. Gardens are also established for each family.

  • CDN Trust Whānau Connections worker

    CDN Kids Camps cater for children from a variety of backgrounds and situations. We love welcoming many children who have not had the support in life that they need and being able to offer them friendships with peers, great young adults as role models and a listening ear, a solid introduction to the Christian faith and heaps of fun on camp too!
    We have come to realise that a lot more support may be needed for some young people and their whānau. CDN’s Whānau Connections worker will be able to engage with young people at camp and listen to their stories. This worker will then follow up with those families post-camp, connecting with the parents and offering to connect them with additional church and community resources such as counselling, food and community (such as Riccarton Food Together), youth groups (such as Unleashed) and other support services.

  • RCC Kitchen upgrade

    The kitchen is often referred to as the heart of a home, and for the RCC facilities, this is also true – practically every group who uses our facilities offers some hospitality, and a kitchen we can use and clean effectively is central to this. In planning the current insurance work, we started to review what we could do with the space we have.
    Users like the RCC Craft Group team, who have regular cooking-based crafts, are really excited about our plans to re-format the kitchen space, stacking the ovens and having a separate cook top, installing stainless steel benchtops that don’t leak water onto the floor, and improving access to storage. These and other changes that will make a huge difference for both regular kitchen users and the events we run for our wider community.
