On Saturday, 24 June 2017, District Apostle J Kriel enjoyed fellowship with the Rectors and wives of the Arcadia and Nobuhle Bishop Areas.

He used this opportunity to express his thanks and appreciation to the Rectors for their contributions in the Lord’s work. He also thanked the wives for their support of their husbands.
On Sunday, 25 June 2017, the sense of excitement and joyful anticipation that prevailed in the Gelvandale congregation was almost tangible. The District Apostle used the Bible word from Psalm 88 verses 10 & 11 as a platform for the divine service.
After Holy Communion was celebrated, the District Apostle dispensed the silver wedding anniversary blessing on the Apostle Gerome Mintoor and his wife.
The choir concluded with the hymn “O Give Thanks unto the Lord” after which the District Apostle greeted the congregation and granted members the opportunity to take photographs.
