1) Preparation and Prayer
Read the following Psalm as a prayer in preparing your heart for meeting with God.
Oh give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works!
Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice!
Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually!
- VERY NB UPDATE/CHANGE: In planning the December events we’ve learnt that there are many restrictions and challenges in organising outdoor events. So we (as the elders) have been discussing it among ourselves and with the police and have come to the conclusion that it’s just not worth pursuing outdoor events this December.So the updated plans are:
1) NO Carols-By-Candlelight. Sadly this event will be cancelled this year.
2) 2 Christmas services in our hall. The Afrikaans service will be at 7:30am and the English service at 9:30am.
All services will be limited to 100 people, so you will have to book your seats for all services from the 20th of December to the 10th of January
- 15th Liesl Pieterse;
- 16th Maryna Oosthuizen;
- 17th Carol Malan
- WEDDING ANNIVERSARIES
- 19th Herman and Anne Jolink.
- NEEDING HELP? If you are struggling emotionally and spiritually and you are needing counseling, please contact Carel-J.
If you have any physical needs, please contact Carel-J or one of the elders.

- PLAN TO HELP THOSE WHO GET SICK WITH COVID-19. We want to help those who need to self-quarantine due to being sick with COVID-19 or who have been in contact with someone who tested positive. This involves two things:
a) If you do get sick, please let us know. Let us know what type of help you need. E.g. help with buying your groceries, deliver meals, take you to the hospital if you have no transport, etc.
b) We’ll need volunteers who will be able to help with the above (buying / making and delivering food). If you are able to assist in this way, please let Carel-J know.
- BADISA FOOD PARCELS – Badisa knows of many vulnerable, poor families who are not able to provide for themselves during these times. They pack and deliver food parcels to these families. You can help by buying and placing non-perishable items in the containers provided at SPAR and OK
Please record yourself sharing a testimony and send it to me, so that we can include it in these services.
