Normal Services

Confirmation candles on the altar Sunday service times The playing of the organ lifts the spirits

   We serve a multi-lingual community, even though it still retains a strong German character, and so we communicate mainly in English as the common language understood by everyone we serve.

   Services are conducted in English and German, alternating every Sunday. Should there however be non-German-speakers attending a German service, the Pastor will seamlessly switch to English or Afrikaans for a part of the service to accommodate everyone attending.

   Services start at 10:00 every Sunday, unless otherwise announced well in advance which allows you to sleep in. Festival services, like Easter and Christmas, are usually conducted bilingually. Occasionally we join one of our sister congregations in KZN for combined services, especially when there is a choir festival or brass band festival. These services are announced well in advance in our bi-monthly ’Contact’ newsletter.
