We would love to see “every person in the greater Pretoria area have reasonable access to a Bible-teaching church.” At the end of February 2022, as Phase One of pursuing this mission, Living Hope sent out one of our pastors, along with 14 other adult members of our church, to start a new church in Pretoria West. With time, we hope to help start churches in other parts of the greater Pretoria area where we see a significant need for Bible-teaching churches, especially the Townships West and North West of Pretoria.
Pretoria West Bible Church:
Historically, Pretoria West has been a blue collar, almost entirely Afrikaans-speaking area. As one of the most affordable areas in Pretoria to buy a home, the area has become much more ethnically diverse in recent years, with the growing African demographic generally much more fluent in English than Afrikaans. Most existing churches in the area are Afrikaans-medium, while newer, English-medium churches tend to be very Charismatic and/or Prosperity Gospel churches. There is a big need for English-medium, Bible-teaching churches in the area.
Pretoria West Bible Church gathers for worship at 10am every Sunday at 148 Viviers Street, Danville. The church currently has one Gospel Community group that meets in Danville on Thursday evening, and one Gospel Community group that meets in Ga-Rankuwa on Wednesday evenings. Transport is provided to and from church on Sundays from Ga-Rankuwa. For more details, see the Pretoria West Bible Church website here.
