On Sunday 11 September 2022, the congregation of Robertson West gathered for a special divine service conducted by the District Rector, Bishop J Cook. The Bible word Deuteronomy 28:2 served as the basis for the service.
Priest Zamuxolo Qhanqisa was called upon to also serve along.
The Bible word and sermon further served to this blessed occasion as the Rectors of Robertson North and West, their wives, Priest Jacques and sister Brenda Wentzel, and Community Evangelist Jerome and sister Michelle Jacobs received their 25th wedding anniversary blessing.
In preparation for this special act, the congregation witnessed a heartwarming tribute as the couples soulfully performed hymn collection number 20, Heavenly Father send Thy blessing. During his address, the Bishop thanked the two Rectors for doing the Lord’s work and also thanked their wives for their steadfast support. He encouraged the couple to not fear the future as God will bless them and their children.
After the divine service, the Bishop invited the couples to the altar again, this time to join him in greeting the members. The joy of the members was evident as the entire congregation wished the two couples.
