Why I Am [Still] a Christian

Why I Am [Still] A Christian

28 April – 19 May 2019.
Sunday mornings at 10AM.
6 Spin Street, Cape Town.

My name is Stephen, I’m the pastor of a small church in the Cape Town CBD. Yes, a pastor! That means I spend a lot of time teaching people about the Christian faith. Maybe it’s incredulous to you that educated modern people still believe in the existence of a divine being. Or maybe you think there might be a God out there, but your doubt often gets the better of you. Well, I doubt too. Often actually. If you’d allow me, I’d like to, in the midst of my doubt, share my story of belief with you (again).

Two years ago I gave the original four talks outlining why I still believed in the Christian God. Last year, over the course of four evenings, I gave four new public talks on some of the reasons I (still) believe in the Christian God. We had many different types of people come to those talks and had fantastic discussions around the subject. This year, due to increasing interest, I want to do that again, the same talks as last year, but this time we’re doing them in our morning church service. I want to try and answer this question: If I made the decision to leave the Christian faith tomorrow, what things would bug me, or haunt me, at the back of my mind, as to whether or not I had made the right decision? I want to invite you to join me on one or all of these Sunday mornings as I explore that question.

The service starts at 10:00am and will consist of a short time of singing, music and a 30-minute sermon, followed by a time of Q&A where you can ask anything you want related to the topics discussed. There is a Sunday School programme available for small kids.
