We would love to see “every person in the greater Pretoria area have reasonable access to a Bible-teaching church.” As Phase One of pursuing this mission, Lord willing, Living Hope will send out around 20 of our members at the end of February 2022 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 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.
Lord willing, “Pretoria West Bible Church” will begin gathering for worship in the Proclamation Hill area on Sunday, 6 March. More details to come!
