Hi. We are Christ Church Midrand and we are a family. We meet together regularly and serve each other and the world. What we have in common is that we’ve given our lives to Jesus, God’s son who died and rose to save us, and we live by his word, the Bible.
What’s the experience like? We’re diverse in culture and age and we come as we are when we meet together. We love the old hymns in our Sunday 8am service, lift our voices to the newer songs in our Sunday 9:30 service and dance to traditional praise in our Sunday 6pm service. We’re a family church, a place where teens, kids, students and adults can sit under biblical teaching that is at their respective levels.
We’re an active church, constantly meeting together and pursuing change in the world. We plant churches, train preachers, train kids workers, teach theology, train educators and a host more.
What runs through the blood of each person of Christ Church Midrand is a DNA proclaiming that we are a Redeemed Family of Servants on Mission. What does that mean? Click here to find our more or watch the video below.

Having this in mind, and knowing that Father’s Day is around the corner, I asked some men in our church for advice. This is what they responded with
