On Sunday 09 January 2022, Westridge congregation and close family members were privileged to

witness the 50th wedding anniversary blessing of the devoted Gerald and Gwendoline van Schalkwyk.

The Bible word serving as basis of the wedding blessing was Psalm 84 verse 11.

This momentous occasion celebrated the couple’s long-standing life together and their undying love to each other. Their love and life together were described as “true examples of patience, endurance and commitment” as they stood in oneness in all decisions. They continually fostered a God-fearing home that served as a beacon of peace and fellowship all these years.

The Rector, CEV Clarence Cookson, served as the officiant of the divine service and wedding blessing.
