On Sunday 06 August 2017, the congregation of Voëlvlei experienced many blessings with the visit of the Apostle A Kriel.

Souls received the gift of the Holy Spirit through the act of Holy Sealing. The Apostle also placed the Rector Helper Colin Petersen into well-deserved retirement. Further blessings were encountered with the ordination of 2 priests and 2 deacons for the congregation.
