TUESDAY EVENING PRAYER MEETING
There will be no meeting this Tuesday 2nd October 2018 due to the public holiday. However, we will resume on Tuesday 9th October 2018 with focus on the Youth outreach of the church through the Phakalane Bible Study.
It’s with sadness that we announce the passing on of Pa John Matanda Mayondi, Gloria Mayondi’s father-in-law, on the 23rd September 2018 and was buried on Wednesday 26th September 2018, in Zambia.
Our prayers and sympathy are with the Mayondis, as we continue to pray for God’s comfort and strength upon them at this difficult time.
