We offer the ministry of healing and prayer for special needs at all of our services.
This normally takes place during the time of Communion alongside the Minister’s stall.
Please avail yourself of this ministry as you have need.
Enquiries to the Rector.
Emergency prayer needs may be directed to the Prayer Chain who have a number of people
who will hold that need up to the Lord. If you have a need for such prayer, or if
you feel called to join in this ministry.

Library and CD Ministry
We have a library of Christian books, situated in a room off the church foyer. In
addition, you may order CDs of sermons either for loan or for purchase. Please order
by way of the pew card.
We seek to support materially the work of various organizations, e.g. the House of
Resurrection Haven, St Christopher's Home for Street Children and the Salvation Army's
work at Greenbushes, among others, through appeals that we have from time to time.
This is in addition to donations that we make as a parish as part of our tithing.
We are part of the Exodus Initiative, a Christian Based Community Organization and
a vehicle for a wide grouping of Churches to make an impact in society.
In 2007, we started a project entitled "The Esther Sewing Class" in an informal settlement
area about 8 km from our church. The classes are run at a home for abandoned and
abused babies in which home we are also involved. Seven women
from the area currently
attend these classes. They make patchwork quilts and handbags. The women receive
half the sale price and the other half purchases more material which makes the project
sustainable. We are keen to expand this project as it provides some income for people,
who are largely illiterate and part of an impoverished community.
