The congregation of Lyttelton in Pretoria East District welcomed Apostle JM Joubert into their midst on Christmas day, 25 December 2017.

The Apostle took the Bible word from Matthew 1:23, "‘Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,’ which is translated, ‘God with us.’" The Apostle said that we should place Christ at the centre of our Christmas celebrations and added that Christ is the core to us fulfilling our purpose.
