On Sunday 7 May 2017, Franschhoek Congregation held their annual high tea.

Sister Lisa Jacobs was the co-ordinator for this event. The event started at 15:00 in the community hall of Groendal. The MC  was Priest Henry Jacobs. They were also entertained by different kinds of performances, with their English members who rendered some traditional hymns; brother Johnny who played the accordion; sister Marche Williams who sang a solo; and the Sunday school children who did some spiritual dancing. The highlight of the afternoon was their guest speaker, Miss Danneline Rampsden from Namaqualand who recently worked for Pronk Communication Management Entertainment in Stellenbosch, who told some traditional stories that were very entertaining. The reason for the high tea was fundraising and also to have fellowship with one another.
