Were you there… when Jesus washed the Disciples’ feet?

Date 28th February 2016  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage John 13:1-17

This chapter begins with John’s account of Jesus’ final hours before his crucifixion. Over the next few weeks, leading up to Easter, we will track Jesus’ journey to the cross.

Families of Faith: Widen the Circle

Date 28th February 2016  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and Acts 16:1-5

Many of us have heard the African proverb: “It takes a village to raise a child.” In African culture this boils down to some extensive sharing of intimate parenting responsibilities among mums, dads, siblings, cousins, uncles, aunts, grandmas, grandpas and even friends.
