Brothers and sisters from Congo left for Randburg (near Johannesburg) in the nineties to make a living there. In 2008 they started gathering in a rented space, in which there is a Christian bookshop and a meeting room. In addition to the meetings on Sunday, Bible studies also take place during the week.
Two years ago, a large house was purchased in Blairgowrie (Randburg). A few interior walls had to be demolished, resulting in a spacious meeting room and rooms for Sunday school and youth work. The double garage was converted and expanded into a Christian bookstore.
Brother Tony Egglestone, whose family has been living in South Africa for several generations, has recently retired and is now fully committed to the work of the Lord in his country.
