In Matthew 9:38 Jesus calls on us to pray for the growth of the gospel and to address God as “the Lord of the Harvest”. This title, along with numerous passages in the New Testament, demonstrate that our growth as a church is ultimately dependent upon God’s good will and pleasure – he’s the one who brings in the harvest. It’s become clear to us, over the past few months, that God, in his good will and pleasure, has seen fit to send some significant numerical growth to our church. Our average Sunday attendance has doubled over the last 2 years. This is an unbelievable answer to prayer. For me, as your pastor, it is incredibly humbling to observe this growth in our community. As I look out on a Sunday morning I’m filled with a deep gratitude towards God and a deep appreciation for the spiritual family he has put together here.
After much prayer and discussion within the congregation we feel the Lord is leading us to start a second service to accommodate the growth. To that end we will be launching a new 6:30pm service on the 26th of May, at our 6 Spin Street venue. We want to make more opportunities available for people to come and worship, hear the gospel being taught, and build community. The service will be a mirror image of the 10am service (same sermon and worship). The only difference will be that there will be no Sunday School for children in the evening.
We want to invite you to join us at the launch. More than that, we want to invite you to pray. Pray for God to use this new service to make his gospel even more accessible to more people in our city. Friends I think there are incredibly exciting times ahead of us. God has led us and been faithful every step of the way so far and we’re excited to see this next step unfold.
Launch date: 26 May 2019
Location: 6 Spin Street, Cape Town CBD
