The Mission of our Church says,

“Reaching the lost for Christ, grooming them to Christ-like maturity through the power of the Holy Spirit, and inspiring a great fellowship for worship and ministry to the glory of God”

In pursuit of the statement, grooming them to Christ-like maturity through the power of the Holy Spirit”, the Church has put in place FIVE Discipleship courses. The Church ultimately intends that over time every member of the Church goes through all the five courses. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose by availing yourself of the opportunity provided by the church. Each level provides you with a refreshingly deeper relationship with God.

To be eligible for any of the five courses, each would-be participant must have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as a personal Lord and Saviour AND must have been baptised by immersion as demanded by our Church Constitution. Please discuss your particular status with Director, Discipleship Programme or the Supervising Deacon/ Deaconess.
