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 2020

  • Parking for the Future

    The South Express Cycle Route has now been confirmed by the Christchurch City Council to follow a route down Elizabeth Street.
    While greater use of cycles is a good thing, there are significant adverse impacts on RCC, including:

    › an overall reduction in available on-street parking outside church
    › a construction period of many months 

    It is important that our church has available parking, safe and close, and for that reason we would like to develop part of the dairy property, owned by RCC, as additional car parking. This project will be completed in two stages, with the intention of eventually providing an additional 16 car parks. This project is estimated to cost more than $100,000.

  • Translations to Change a Continent

    Previous VIG projects have provided funding for RCC to be a part of establishing a Mavuno church plant in Bujumbura, Burundi. The church is now in need of Christian discipleship resources translated into their local language, French.

    Our partner church in Nairobi, Kenya has a range of Christian resources on the topics of marriage, parenting, prayer and discipleship (including Mizizi which we run at RCC). We believe the translation of these resources would have a hugely positive impact in the lives of individuals, families and communities in Bujumbura and beyond.
