On Sunday, 12 January 2020, Bishop G James held the last divine service for the

congregation of Swellendam. After 15 years, the decision was made that the building is no longer needed and that the congregants need to attend the mother congregation, Railton, in Swellendam, as of 15 January 2020.

It was a sad, yet uplifting moment on Sunday 12 January 2020. 

The Bishop was accompanied by the Rector of Railton, Priest P Baartman and Priest R Julies, who was the Rector for Swellendam congregation, as well as Priest M Abrahams who assisted. 

The members of the congregation thanked our Heavenly Father for the blessings bestowed on them during the previous years.
