A cricketing double-act, featuring Peter Pollock and Johan Botha, drew the crowds at an evangelistic weekend, hosted by St James Church in Port Elizabeth, recently.

Peter Pollock event 023 cropped 2On the Friday evening Johan engaged with Grade 6-12 learners about his faith and the importance of being 100% sold out for Jesus. Learners came from schools where congregation members are employed as teachers or visit voluntarily to teach Scripture classes. (St James members teach 6 Scripture classes in local schools each week). The church’s ongoing links with local schools also provided great opportunities for follow up.

Peter spoke to the children but also addressed adults at a banquet on the Saturday evening and preached at the Sunday service. Many lives were touched and some professed faith during a follow-on Christianity Explained course.
