His Chosen Ones

Ecclesia Centre is a Non-Profit Organization in Villiersdorp that was established to uplift and protect youth in the community. Encompassing a place of care and positive learning for babies, toddlers and young children from the age of six months upwards, Ecclesia Centre helps pave the way for youth to grow into educated and well-balanced adults. The centre has a number of facilities which includes a baby and childcare centre, a resource centre and essential youth counselling services. A daily feeding scheme fills the tummies of the Ecclesia Centre’s full-time and part-time attendees. Furthermore, there are six off-site soup kitchens run by volunteers that provide food for the homeless, and those in need, twice a week at different locations throughout the community.

Business Information



Heidi and Randall Louw were born with a passion for helping people and are a match made in heaven. Shortly after they got married, the couple established the Ecclesia Centre which is a culmination of their dedication to uplifting those most in need in their community.


With a population of approximately 35,000 people, the Villiersdorp community is comprised of generations of farm labourers who have been born into a culture of poverty. 

It is heartbreaking to know that alcoholism, drug abuse, school dropouts and early pregnancies are all a normal part of life. Ecclesia Centre strives to make a difference in this outcome.
