The congregation of Vasco came into being when two long standing congregations merged.
Elsies River Road congregation and Fisher Street congregation amalgamated after a plot of land was purchased in De Villiers Street, Goodwood, and a church could be built.
The development of the Church was not restricted to the Goodwood area but extended beyond its borders leading to the establishment of Townsend Estate, Ruyterwacht and Vrijzee, to name but a few. These developments gave many members who had at the time been part of the Vasco congregation the opportunity of attending closer to home. This in itself did not deter the growth in Vasco itself and during 1977 further alterations became necessary with the addition of a balcony to seat more members.
At the threshold of one of the most significant festive divine services in the tradition of the New Apostolic Church, District Apostle N Barnes visited this congregation on Wednesday, 3 July 2013. It proved to be very fitting that he should visit a congregation with such a vibrant and rich history which is still so visibly active today.
After the divine service District Apostle Barnes spent some time in the company of the members and could offer well wishes to Sister C Boonziaaer, who would celebrate her 78th birthday the following day.
