We are a group of Christians in Redwood Park engaging in ‘whole of life’ mission by running a cafe as a means of connecting with our local community. We are all about providing a space where families and locals feel welcome, comfortable and valued, with the intention of building relationships and sharing our faith in Jesus. Our desire is to see the gospel proclaimed, those among us cared for and believers discipled, so as to live out our faith and grow together as the body of Christ.
We are a member church of the Baptist Churches of SA. Rather than gathering as a church for one weekly meeting, we have a couple of small house churches which meet in our homes and allow for prayer, learning from the Word and worship. We also live as a community of believers, with our lives intertwined as we work and spend time in the café, always looking to be salt and light as we serve and connect.
Our church doesn’t employ a pastor at present, but rather we look to each of us to use our gifts in pastoral care, teaching, leadership etc. We have a small group of elders who have oversight over the church and the café ministry. Our prayer is to see our house churches grow in size and number as those we connect with come to know Jesus.
