Some Worcester Ministries
We are Laurie-Ann and Tony Copple, missionaries: coppleswesterncape.ca
We are members of IRIS Western Cape, Robertson, but we are based in Worcester.
|We operate an Internet radio station, CWCP Radio, twice a week on Wednesdays at 9 pm, and Thurdays
8pm South Africa 6pm GMT 1pm EST.|
Link to Galcom Xstreamer where CWCP Radio will appear when actually broadcasting. Programs run approximatlely 1 hour.
As we discover Worcester society and infrastructure during our 3 year mission here, I will list those organizations we have connections with, or have heard about through friends, that are working for the social benefit of disadvantaged people, and/or spreading the Gospel.
These are just a subset of the many organizations working to help the poor and sick in this apparently prosperous town. If you would like to delve deeper into our life here, check out my South Africa daily journal.
Many links are to Facebook pages, unless they have web sites.

Legacy Relay links primary schools with helpers who are seniors in the community ready to share their skills and experience with young children.
This enables subjects that are no longer taught in school due to crowded curricula to remain in place at no cost to the school, and gives seniors the satisfaction of seeding into the community instead of the all-too-common impression that
no one is interested in their legacy of knowledge. Listen to Louis Le Grange on CWCP Radio Worcester Reports
