January 6, 2022
In this my first e-letter of 2022, I join Siphiwe and our families in wishing you a blessed 2022. May God’s goodness and grace be yours.
IN-PERSON WORSHIP IN JANUARY
We gather for in-person worship @ 9h00 this Sunday 9 January. On 16 January, we will return to worshipping in-person at 8h00 and 10h00, with Godly Play for kids @ 8h00 and Children’s Church and Rooted Youth @ 10h00. We will also serve coffee and tea after the services from 16 January. As the COVID-19 infection rates continue to fall and it becomes clear that vaccines are indeed preventing serious disease, I encourage those of you living in Centurion to return to in-person worship. It’s always a joy to be together and catch up after long times apart.

We kick off 2022 with our first preaching series – a four-week exploration of 1 Thessalonians – on 16 January. If your New Year’s resolution is to join a small group, click on the button below to sign up for a small group.

WELCOME CHARL VENTER
We welcome our new Youth Pastor, Charl Venter, onto our staff team. Charl has served congregations in Gauteng, Cape Town and the US and we look forward to working alongside him in impacting our young people with the gospel of Jesus Christ
We closed off 2021 with tithes and offerings just R121 000 (2%) short of budget. Thank you for your regular, sacrificial, and joyful giving towards God’s work at West View, which has enabled us to continue to be a community where life change happens by the power of God’s Spirit.
Grace and Peace
