On 30 January 2019, District Apostle J Kriel visited the congregation of Somerset West 1931.

The congregation awaited his visit with great excitement and anticipation. The District Apostle was accompanied by Bishop Ravell, as well as the Rector and the congregation’s priestly ministers.

As basis for the divine service the District Apostle read a Bible word from Joshua 15:19, “She answered, ‘Give me a blessing; since you have given me land in the South, give me also springs of water.’ So he gave her the upper springs and the lower springs.”

This festive divine service was supported and beautified by the congregational singing, choir and male choir singing, as well as the organist and orchestra. After the divine service, the District Apostle greeted the congregation and took time to interact with the members and retired ministers in the congregation. He also spent time and took photos with the confirmands, who were confirmed on Sunday 03 February 2019.
