CMCT’s ministries was born when the young New Zealander, Dr. Colleen Redit, in obedience to God’s call on her life came to Tamil Nadu in 1964. Started out of Dr. Colleen’s garage as a refuge for underprivileged girls the ministry has grown to encompass 26 specific areas of commitment and work. It ministers to the downtrodden, the destitute, the abandoned, the marginalized, and the sick through a range of services such as education, training, sponsorship, medical, food distribution, and accommodation. A holistic ministry, CMCT endeavours to develop and transform the individual as a whole to be better citizens of this country.
CMCT’s flagship ministry is the Orphanage and Hostel run for girls. Housed in CMCT’s main building on Spur Tank road, it provides a safe haven for the abandoned or for those from very poor backgrounds. The Handicraft section trains young adult girls and women in the art of handicrafts empowering them with valuable income generating skills while the Art, Screen and Textile printing units provides employment for young adult boys and men from impoverished backgrounds.
The Soup kitchens provides a hot meal to the neglected elderly while the Everyday Girls and Boys Rallies ministers to the social, emotional and spiritual needs of the young. The Rainbow ministry of Hope demonstrates God's love to those affected by AIDS / HIV while the Leprosy Rehabilitation Project cares for those afflicted by a disease that still cruelly isolates and marginalizes. The Bethany Healthcare Centre provides a range of healthcare services often free of cost to those most in need while the Bethany School provides free nursery, primary and higher secondary schooling to children from underprivileged backgrounds.
Children being a primary focus at CMCT, the Sponsorship Program supports the educational needs of over 1500 underprivileged children while the recently started Street Children’s Ministry caters to the spiritual and educational needs of children from the streets. These and the other ministries of CMCT aim to bringing a lasting hope into lives lost in despair. It aims to reach the neglected, the lonely, and the impoverished with the message of hope.
