Taipei is a city of extremes, with great wealth but also widespread poverty. As disciples of Christ, we follow his command to reach out in care to those in need around us, advocating for their needs, and welcoming them as equal members in God’s family.
Every month the EM Homeless Ministry Team visits friends living on the streets around the church and around Taipei Main Station. We prepare tasty home-cooked meals to share, and spend time chatting, praying, and building community with our homeless neighbors. Throughout the year we also host dinner parties at the church where homeless friends can experience welcome, fun, joy, and fellowship, and be a welcome part of our faith community.
We also provide assistance with health care, hairdresser days, and care packs (of toiletries and, especially during winter, of warm clothes and blankets).
We encourage everyone to come be a part of the Homeless Ministry Team, and to share hospitality and care with those in need around us.
