Hidden Treasures is a ministry initiated by the Women’s Department of the Baptist Union of South Africa.
A BIBLICAL MODEL: The Early Church in Acts 2:44-45 “All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need.”
THE NAME: Matthew 13:44 “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy, went and sold all he had and bought that field.”
Our congregation collects bric a brac and small furniture items for the Hidden Treasures shop in Athlone. The total profits of this shop goes to the funding of a home for the aged, Parkhaven. This home cares for roughly 18 elderly ladies who would otherwise have not have a home.
