Our 2016 Synod has come and gone and it certainly has been a most encouraging time. Tokai Community Church and St.Stephen’s Claremont hosted our Synod Service and business sessions respectively. They were excellent hosts and I’m grateful to God for all the Western Cape Churches who worked together for the success of Synod 2016. Our speaker, Rev. Melvin Tinker brought the superiority of Christ to light through his excellent expositions on Hebrews 1 and we all the richer for it.  We also had numerous speakers highlighting various ministries in our regions. Our focus was Evangelism and the Lord providentially ensured a smooth dovetailing of word and testimony. I am also thrilled at the response to the Presiding Bishop’s Charge and particularly the REACH500 vision.  Next year is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and each local church has been challenged to make 2017 a year when, using creative evangelism methods, 500 new people are engaged with the message of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. I’m delighted to report that many have already taken up the challenge and I get weekly updates on various evangelistic dinners, outreaches, 1-2-1 conversations that are happening in our churches.

Post of the Month

Why did God create the World?

by John Piper



  • Pray for the Lord to open doors for us to share Christ with the nation and our neighbours.  Ask the Lord to ignite a fire in our hearts for evangelism.
  • Be at prayer for our God to bring peace to our troubled country in the areas of criminal activity and the university crisis.
