We are running a food drive every Sunday of non-perishable foods for God's Pantry for those in need and less fortunate than us. Food donations can be dropped at the back of the church or contact Lebo Nyakale on 081 039 2349 for more information.
The Cathedral plans to run an Alpha course for parishioners in 2018. Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore the basics of the Christian faith. This course is for everyone who is curious to explore the big questions of life, faith and meaning. The sessions are designed to encourage conversation and exploration of Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. More details will be provided in the next coming weeks.

GOD’S MAGNIFICENT SMILE: INSPIRATION FOR THE JOURNEY
At the Ngewu Memorial Lecture held at the Cathedral on 30 September 2017, a publication entitled “God’s Magnificent Smile: Inspiration for the journey” was launched. This booklet contains a chapter from a collection of writings by the late Dean Livingstone Lubabalo Ngewu. It will certainly put a smile on your face. The booklet costs R50.00.
FLOWERS IN CHURCH
Members of the Cathedral are given the opportunity to consider the sponsoring of the floral arrangements when they want to do a thanksgiving or a memorial. Should you be interested please fill in your details on the roster at the back of the Cathedral, or call the parish office for more information. The intention is to carry a brief note of acknowledgement (“flowers in lieu of”) in the pew leaflet on occasions when flowers are sponsored.
A reminder to the congregation that the Compassionate Committee is keen to come alongside members who are living through challenging times. If you are in bereavement, or affected by serious illness, or in need of prayer support for whatever reason, the Compassionate Committee members would love to embrace you with their presence and support. Call the parish office or Ms Sangoni (see back of Pew leaflet for phone numbers) for more information.
