Community

In a sense, everything we do as a church encourages Christ-Centred Community.

Our weekly Sunday Worship Services are foundational to our practice and experience of church community! We come together as a church family to pray, sing, and hear from God’s Word.

Our Gospel Community Groups are key in cultivating community in our church. These groups get their name from the truth that the gospel creates our community (it makes us family in Christ), and our community will only be as deep and vibrant as it can be if it is centred on the gospel… We have 7 Gospel Community Groups, meeting in different neighbourhoods of Pretoria. These groups of 5-15 people  get to know each other very well. Members of each group help one another apply God’s Word to their lives, care for each other in prayer, counsel, and practical ways, and seek to live life together as family in Christ. Please click here for more information about these groups.

Twice a year we enjoy an All-Church Meal and Baptism Service together. We also share a meal together as a Church Family on Easter Sunday, and at our annual Christmas Celebration.

Once a year we enjoy an All-Church Fun Day together.

Our Church Family Meetings provide an opportunity for our church members to stay informed about how the various ministries of our church are developing, what needs exist in the church, what is planned in the near future, and how specifically we can all be praying for our church. These meetings include times of praying together for our church and for sister churches. There are normally 4 or 5 of these meetings per year.

Our Discipleship Groups meet after our Sunday Worship Service on the 3rd Sunday of the month, from 3pm-4:30pm. These are small groups (2 or 3 people each) of men with men, and women with women, seeking to “spur one another on” in walking with Christ. Groups read through a book together, discussing how it applies to life, and praying for one another. Childcare is provided.

Ladies Bible Studies are a great way for ladies to spend time with other ladies in the church and to get to know them on a deeper level. These Bible Studies meet one Saturday a month, from 1pm-3pm. For more information, please click here.

Young Adults Ministry: Our Young Adults Ministry is for people aged 18-30ish, whether single or married. This ministry meets one Friday evening per month. For more information, please click here.
