New Church Launched in South Africa

We are delighted that Nigel Richardson - a church planter in South Africa - just began public worship services with God's help. Nigel is a graduate of the 2010 International Church Planting Intensive and planted in Durban, South Africa. This new church is called Trinity Church Morningside.

The first service took place on Sunday, March 20th and drew about 100 people - a very healthy number for the first service of a new church. Durban is the third largest city in South Africa and is famous for having the biggest port in the country.

Of this new church, Nigel says, "We expect to be a community through which the gospel of Jesus Christ brings change and renewal, in ourselves and in our friends as we introduce them to the hope of the gospel. We also look for change in our neighborhood and city as we work for its good - socially and spiritually." 

To learn more about this project, please email us at or, if you are in Durban, you can visit Trinity Morningside which meets at Greyville Presbyterian Church on Windermere Road (New name: Lilian Ngoyi Road), opposite the Windermere Centre at 5:00pm on Sundays.
