The congregation of Somerset West 1819 was the venue for a special divine service held by District Apostle J Kriel on Sunday 24 February 2019.

He was accompanied by Apostle A Kriel, Bishops L Ravell and J Cook and the local priestly ministers.

The Bible word for the divine service was taken from John 11: 28 (last portion), “The Teacher has come and He is calling for you.”

During the divine service, the District Apostle dispensed the wedding blessing upon the retired Bishop Gut and his wife, Petro. Various retired ministers also attended this divine service, and amongst them was the retired District Apostle N Barnes.

After the divine service the District Apostle spent some time with congregation’s priestly ministers - strengthening and encouraging them to continue conducting soul care visits to the members in their respective sections.

This was a truly memorable service for the members of Somerset West 1819.
