The Protestant Social Centre
IPC has a long history in local mission work as a part of the Protestant Social Centre. Years ago, IPC helped create the PSC as a means of providing a unified Protestant presence in Brussels and as an efficient way of joint service to those most at risk in our community. From assistance for refugees and the homeless, to clothing, school supplies, medical care, language instruction, social connections, aid for battered spouses, assistance in finding homes and general “pastoral presence”, PSC has been OUR shared presence in Brussels ministry.
During the month of March, our Mission collection will be going to the PSC to assist in responding to the overwhelming need generated by the extreme cold weather. The “invisible” people of our city, the refugees, children, the homeless and the elderly are all more vulnerable than ever. Meeting the basic needs of shelter, warm food and warm clothing, can make the difference between safety and security or hypothermia or even death. Individually, we are limited in our response, but working together we can respond in faithfulness to care for “the least of these”.
The shared ministry of the PSC is possible ONLY because of the support from congregations like IPC. We CAN and DO make a difference!
