True Religion

“Pure and lasting religion in the sight of God our Father means that we must care for orphans and widows in their troubles and refuse to let the world corrupt us.” – James 1:27

Each year we invite you to get involved in our True Religion initiative, a special part of our Christmas. True religion is not defined by religious practice or activity but by the outworking of our faith in God that is seen by our genuine love and care for others, and in particular those who are vulnerable. As we plan our own Christmas festivities, we ask you to consider how you can make Christmas special for others.

Historically, Enjoy Church, through Enjoy Communities and our True ReligionCampaign, partnered with Village Life Cambodia for several years, supporting the development goals of vulnerable communities in Cambodia. This project became so successful that these communities have since become self-sustainable. 
In 2022 our True Religion partner organisation was Children in Families (CIF).  Due to the pushes and pulls of poverty, children in Cambodia are at high risk of being separated from their families and being placed in residential care centres such as orphanages or sent to work in unsafe environments to help provide for their families. In partnership with CIF our True Religion funding strengthened 69 vulnerable families, enabling their children to remain in their family and in school and provided the means for their parents to work locally.  
This year we will again be partnering with CIF and in addition Mothers Heart across 5 Provinces in Cambodia.  In Cambodia 1 in 5 women will face a crisis pregnancy.  Mothers Heart exists to empower, equip and educate women and their families through crisis counselling, pre and post natal support services, medical care and community involvement so that each woman can choose the best future for themselves and their babies.  

We have the opportunity to make this Christmas extra special for those in our local community who may find it extra challenging for whatever reason. Through our True Religion campaign, we encourage every Enjoyer to be proactive in connecting with their community. This is the season to go beyond the walls of your Enjoy Church location, and extend a hand towards your neighbour, work colleagues, a school friend, or anyone that God has placed around you.


Together we can make Christmas special for those in our local and Cambodian communities. Thank you for your continued generosity in seeing lives transformed and communities restored.
