Praise the Lord for his faithfulness: Heritage Baptist Church continues to grow, from initial Lord’s Day meetings of ten souls to meetings now of 55–70 souls.
Our biggest challenge has been to find a suitable venue for worship. Currently we meet in a small hall that is overcrowded most Sundays. There is no room for mothers with young children and it is not available, or viable, for midweek meetings. The toilets and kitchen are also not in great shape. This is a challange since the area we are seeking to minister into is fairly upmarket and developed, creating a barrier to people visiting.
A Possible Solution
This week we came across a church building for sale, in our target area. You can see the listing by clicking here. The building is beyond the budget of our church plant. It is a sought-after site and other religous groups are interested in purchasing it. The amount we need to raise is R2.7 million.
What Can You Do?
