Our aim as a church is to glorify God by knowing Christ and making him known in Hillbrow, the surrounding areas of Johannesburg and the world.
We will fulfil this in three ways:
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations...” Matthew 28:19
“...as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him …” Col. 2:6
Sunday 9:30amWe meet every Sunday Morning. We gather for fellowship, prayer and to hear from God’s word. There is a prayer meeting incorporated into the service on the last Sunday of every month. There is Sunday School during the service.
Bible StudyDuring the week we meet to study God’s word. In 2017 we are doing the Belonging Course, as we think about what it means to belong to Christ Church HIllbrow. If you would like to join a group please register here. Please contact Ben for more information.
Children and YouthThere is Sunday School for children during the Sunday service and there are kid's clubs on Friday. There is a meeting for Youth (14-18) on Fridays at 5:30pm.
Christ Church Hillbrow is a congregation of The Reformed Evangelical Anglican Church in South Africa (REACh SA), the church has been meeting for over one hundred years and today we seek to represent and reach all those in our local community. Below is a brief summary of what we believe.
We are a Christian Church
We believe in one God who has revealed himself supremely through his Son, the Lord Jesus. To know God the Father, we must put our trust in his Son and his death for our sins. The chief work of God the Holy Spirit is to draw people to faith in Christ.
We are an Evangelical Church
We believe that the Bible is God’s word and is therefore our authority in all matters of faith and conduct. See the section below for our basis of faith which expresses much of what we believe. In all our activities we seek to listen to and obey God’s word in Scripture. We also aim to proclaim the Bible’s wonderful message of salvation through Christ to as many people as possible.
We are an Anglican Church
We stand in the tradition of the Anglican Reformers of the 16th Century, affirming with them the great truths which were rediscovered at the time of the Reformation, such as the sovereignty of God in salvation, justification by faith alone, and salvation in Christ alone.As a reformed Anglican church we subscribe to the doctrines of the thirty nine articles which may be found here.
