EVENTS  

New Series: The Book of Joy –  Sun 15 Oct @ 8:30am & 10:30am
No matter what happens with culture, politics, or the economy, God’s hope and joy is alive and available. It’s given and received freely through faith, and can fill you with courage and confidence because this joy is anchored in something much greater than our world—in God himself. In this series, we’ll explore the unshakeable power of God’s joy described in the book of Philippians, and learn how to keep joy alive in complicated times.

Generosity Sunday 2017
Generosity Sunday is when all New Lifers are encouraged to be as generous as their circumstances allow and to bring a once-off offering, above and beyond their regular giving, to help fund specific Kingdom projects. We invite you to partner with us to build and sustain our Church in order that we can be more effective in spreading the gospel and caring for our communities. The building of the Cosmo facility will be the main thrust of the 2017 campaign and our goal is to raise R2.1m this year to add to the R1.2m which was raised last year. We will also be doing some general and technical upgrades to our Church in Bryanston. For more information or to give, CLICK HERE.
