As part of our Freedom from Fear and Violence Campaign, the Hennops River Circuit of which we are part, is hosting a webinar on Monday 3rd August at 19h30 which is aimed at women. The details of the webinar are as follows…
CHURCH OFFICE HOURS
Starting Monday, the church office will be open 9h00 – 12h00 Monday – Friday. Katlego (Kakes) will be at reception. Staff will continue to work from home but will come into the office for scheduled appointments.
UPPER ROOM DEVOTIONAL GUIDES
The Upper Room Devotional Guides are in a rack mounted against the outside office wall. Please help yourself to them when next you are at the church office.
WEST VIEW MARKET
One of the ways that we will get through this pandemic is by supporting those of us seeking to find new ways of generating an income or maintaining their current businesses. To this end, we’re launching a West View Market. If you would like to advertise your services, your products, or your garage clearance sale, email you advert (text or poster) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Posters should be legible on a smart phone. Ads will appear for a month at a time at the bottom of future e-letters.
