Fellowship Groups

Mary van der Walt - Wilgeheuwel - Thursday
Our group has just finished the 4week series on “Breathing room” by Andy Stanley. Wow what an awesome series. Referees to our cluttered life, finances etc, a highly recommend series. Gave us lots to think about.
We have just started a new series, also by Andy Stanley: You’ve got style. Allowing us to look at different styles of drawing into the presence of God, we are sometimes so quick to judge. Andy teaches us that there is one way to Jesus. But different styles. Questionnaire allows us to find our style that’s fits us best in following Jesus.
Anyone wanting to follow this series with us please come, you are welcome. Session 2 on Thursday 2July 2015 @ 7.

We have been together now for two years. We get together every Thursday evening @ 7. We share our love for the Lord as we grow together in Christ. We have a light supper as most of our group come straight from work. Our teachings are normally from DVD series. We watch a variety of presenters as to fulfill everyone’s taste. Normally after a series we get together for a social lunch. This always has a “twist” and we have lots of fun.

Our group age varies from single to pensioners (all young at heart) occasionally we have a visit from a little one, space is limited to accommodate small children. We are Afrikaans and English but all teachings are done in English.

An adult group of 12 persons meet at on Thursdays evenings at 18h30. The meeting is an enjoyable social time, sharing news and praying for one another. A period of worship and prayer is followed by lessons on topics that have varied from Biblical lessons to the Christian way of life. At present we are understanding more about the overview of the Bible as we follow a series on DVD.

Mike and Marchelle du Toit - Allensnek - Tuesday

We have finished the first 3 subjects in our JESUS LIFESTYLE series and they were really fantastically challenging and rewarding:

  • How to live & act with integrity
  • How to respond to difficult people
  • How to handle conflict

On Tuesday 19th, we tackle the 4th subject – How to become a generous giver!

This promises to be as challenging as the previous 3 sessions and we are looking forward to these discussions…

Just a reminder that we are a group of 30 somethings to 60 somethings and we meet at 19H00 on Tuesday evenings. If you would like to join us, we have room for a few more members…please call Marchelle on 082 318 7152 or Mike on 082 851 1634.

The space offered allows for teenagers to grow together and gain relationships with other teenagers around them through learning about Jesus Christ.

We meet on Friday evenings every week from 18:30-21:00, during the school terms, at Weltevreden Methodist Church. We also meet on Sunday mornings at 09:00 for Teen Church.

Outreach Ministries

Africa Food For Thought - Janet Fourie
Africa Food for Thought is a non-profit organization, run by volunteers, which is essentially focused on equipping and supplying school feeding programmes. We are also involved in a number of community projects, self-help/empowerment projects and shelters and half-way houses. Our aim is to help those who need it the most: the vulnerable and marginalized.  Our vision is “to feed people in the name of Christ, in order to bring hope to the hopeless”.
Soup Kitchen - Sue Gelling and Jenny Matthee

Soup Kitchen is an outreach which is run from the church on Mondays and Fridays from 7.30 – 9.00am

The congregation donate ready-made soup and /or ingredients for making soup. The donations are brought to church in two litre ice cream containers and put in freezers in the blue hall. We serve between 40 -60 gentlemen at a time and they each get a cup of soup, a peanut butter sandwich and a recycled cool drink bottle filled with water.

The church gives us money to buy 40 loaves of bread for each session as well as to buy peanut butter and marge. We mix the peanut butter and marge before the time as it’s easier to spread and saves time on the day.

During the year the gentlemen get blankets and any clothes that are donations and at Christmas time they get a Christmas bucket!.

Cradle Roll - Bev Anderssen

One would need to attend a Saturday morning seminar before having your child baptised. Charmaine (Church secretary) can be contacted or the church notice informs when the next Baptism seminar is.

Baptisms usually take place every month, the 2nd last Sunday in the month. 38 families are at present on my list of children already baptised. They stay on the list for about 3 years.

We give a certificate and a candle/candle holder on the Sunday that they are baptised. I send a birthday card on the baptised child’s birthday and reminders about the date of the child’s baptism to re-light their candle and remember.

I send emails and sms’s for prayers, support and encouragement of parents and children and to keep in contact with them.

I try to have an annual party for the parents and children, at the church towards the end of the year, so they can get to know each other.
