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.
Some women always have the perfect accessory to complement an outfit. They know exactly how to adorn themselves to enhance their natural beauty. Unfortunately I’m not one of these talented women! Five minutes before I go out, I’m scratching around for a lost earring, untangling a nest of jewellery and accusing my daughters of stealing my clothes! I like to think it’s because my mind is on more noble things, but the truth is that I just don’t pay attention to that part of life. But as Christian women, we don’t get to divide up our lives into the bits that matter to God and those that don’t. We are called to adorn the gospel in everything (Titus 2:10Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)), to synchronise our lives with its truth in the everyday unseen details—at home, in church, at work and everywhere else. If the people of God are “the light of the world, a city on a hill that cannot be hidden”, each of our lives matter for the gospel. There is no divide between the spiritual and the physical, between church and home, or between our identity as women and our work for God’s kingdom. Our whole life is an act of worship. It sounds good in theory, but what does it look like in practice for a Christian woman in our generation?
