19 MAY UPDATE: Our first service at our own property!

Thanks to the additional giving by many through the good hand of our Lord, we have cleaned and secured the property and building, given everything some much needed paint, repaired the floor and roof, and performed a long list of repairs and renovations.

Our first service at our own property is 19 May 2024.

27 MARCH UPDATE: It is officially ours!

It’s official: the property is ours!

Four months ago we had R 800 000 in savings and no realistic prospects for a property. Since then the Lord provided the property at 134 Sanctuary Road and the additional funds of R 1 500 000 to reach the purchase price. The transfer fees could all be paid from our operational account, and the Lord moved in some to give a total of R 320 000 for immediate repairs and renovations.

As you worked alongside us in prayer, giving, and counsel, so please join us now in thanksgiving to the Lord whose arm is never to short to help (Isaiah 59:1), whose wisdom is never in dispute (Proverbs 3:19), and whose providence rules over all (Psalm 103:19).

PS. The move-in date will be set once we know when the repairs will be complete

In the words of King David as he prayed to God …

O LORD our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a house for your holy name comes from your hand and is all your own. I know, my God, that you test the heart and have pleasure in uprightness. In the uprightness of my heart I have freely offered all these things, and now I have seen your people, who are present here, offering freely and joyously to you. O LORD, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, our fathers, keep forever such purposes and thoughts in the hearts of your people, and direct their hearts toward you.
—1 Chronicles 29:16-18

Frequently Asked Question: Can I still contribute to the property, perhaps for repairs and renovations?

Answer: There are a number of maintenance and alteration projects that are already being prioritised. Additional funds will be used to speed up the customisations to the property to better accommodate the ministries of LHBC, and perhaps even allow for the hosting of the annual Shepherds Conference in May.
