‘We’re a resilient nation. We’ve lived through a water crisis. We’ve kept going through load shedding. And we’ll stand firm in faith through this pandemic. Together, we can do this.’

CHURCH WILL GATHER ONLINE
The leadership of Hillsong Church South Africa has decided to temporarily suspend Sunday church gatherings, starting from Sunday, 22 March 2020, in order to limit physical contact and prevent the transmission of COVID-19. This decision follows the recent national address by President Cyril Ramaphosa and advisories issued by the authorities (the National Security Council by recommendation of the National Emergency Response Committee).
The physical health and well-being of our congregation is our highest priority. At the same time, it is vital to stay connected and to keep building the church community. To ensure that our church family can remain planted in God’s House during this health crisis and still have a great church experience we will be live-streaming our Sunday services.
We would love for you to join us for online church services every Sunday so that we can keep worshipping God and receiving from the Word together, even if it looks a little different.

Ultimately, even as we pursue preventative measures and exercise wisdom in keeping ourselves and loved ones safe, our faith and security is in Jesus Christ. We pray His promise of protection over you and your family. Let’s also pray for those affected around the world, and that the virus will be quickly contained and conquered.
“Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.” Psalm 91:9-10
LET’S CONTINUE TO PLACE OUR ENTIRE TRUST IN GOD AND CLAIM HIS POWERFUL PROMISE OF PROTECTION FOUND IN PSALM 91.
