On 9 January 2022, members of Macassar congregation waited in eager anticipation for the arrival of District Apostle J Kriel.

The District Apostle was accompanied by Apostle B Bourne, Bishops G James and V Fisher.

The Bible word for the divine service was taken out of Matthew 7:28-29.

At the commencement of the sermon, the District Apostle briefly touched on the theme and message from our Chief Apostle for 2022, ‘Together in Christ’.

Apostle B Bourne was also called upon to serve along.

The Rector, Priest F Louw and District Rector, District Elder J Lee stood as proxies for the serving of Holy Communion for the Departed.

The festive divine service was concluded with a quartet’s beautiful rendition of “We will keep our faith alive”.
