Music Month – June 2022
June is Music Month. During this time special focus will be given to worship through the music of different genres. Therefore, each Sunday we expect to have with us speakers and musicians whose God-Given gifts and talents will enrich the worship experience.
Our theme this year is Psalm 150 – ‘Let everything that hath breath, Praise the Lord‘. So let us pray for a rich time of blessing as we honour God with our praise.

Resumption of Church Activities
With the rescinding of the DRMA COVID-19 Containment Measures, plans are being made for a gradual resumption of other ministry activities in ‘face-to-face’ mode’. These will be guided by the Enforcement Measures under the Public Health Act. We will provide additional details as soon as we finalize the arrangements.

- Hand Washing and Sanitization.
- Mask Wearing in enclosed spaces (highly recommended, but not mandated).
- Maintaining Physical distance (highly recommended, but not mandated).
- Remaining at home if you are feeling unwell.
Also, please remember to pay very close attention to the periodic updates and advisories issued by the relevant authorities relating to COVID 19.
Please remember to call and pray with one another. Also, keep safe, practice social distancing, wash hands, and clean surfaces regularly.
In addition, remember to wear your masks, sanitize, and maintain 6 feet physical distance. Also, let us keep in touch and encourage each other, especially during these very challenging times.
