On Sunday 5 November 2017, the District Apostle served the congregation of Thornhill along with the invited congregations of Matjiesfontein and Patensie.

Adding to this festive Sabbath day was the celebration of the service for the departed.
The Bible word which served as a basis for the divine service was taken out of Hebrews 4:16, “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need”. Apostle Gerome Mintoor assisted in serving the congregation.
After a joyful culmination following months of preparation, the District Apostle took time to greet the congregation.
