On Sunday 12 November 2023, members and ministers departed from Westgate Congregation for a one-day mission trip to Robertson.
After a long-anticipated wait, members finally arrived in Robertson, where they enjoyed breakfast, as they prepared their hearts and souls for the divine service.
Services were conducted in the area by the Rectors of the Rocklands District, and the Bible word: Revelation 22:17, "And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.", formed the basis for the divine services.
Die Herberg Kinderhuis centre cares for 122 children, boys and girls, and gifts were handed over at the children's home on the day. The choir and orchestra created a warm and joyous atmosphere The children and caregivers were filled with much gratitude and appreciation.
After a few touching moments at the children's home, our members and ministers got together at the Prison Hall in Robertson to have lunch.
The concert commenced with an opening prayer and a welcome from Bishop Jerome Cook from Robertson. The mixed adult choir, male choir, children's choir, and orchestra rendered powerful anthems of praise and worship that left the audience wanting more!
A surprise pop-in from Apostle Gavin van Der Hoven enhanced the gathering, where he thanked each one for their labours of love and sacrifices.
