Ben went to Johannesburg Bible College (JBC) in 2010, initially on a two month short-term placement. Later that year he returned to JBC, where he taught until January 2013.
Ben then became involved in church ministry at Christ Church Hillbrow and in 2016 was ordained as minister there. Hillbrow is a needy area but in easy reach of a student community and the business centre. Christ Church has the potential to be a light in all these areas, proclaiming the gospel so that people would come to know and love the Lord Jesus.
Since November 2017 Christ Church Hillbrow has employed a curate, Godfrey Penduka, to work alongside Ben at Christ Church Hillbrow with its expanding ministry in Johannesburg. Godfrey works with young adults, students and youth at the church, as well as assisting Ben with the day to day running of the church.To support Godfrey’s ministry there is a need to raise around £1,300 a month to cover his salary and employment costs. If you would like to help us to employ this extra worker then you can give a one-off gift or make a regular plege here.

Many of you I will have seen me while I was back in the UK.
Now I have returned to South Africa it is time to write up what I have been up to in the last few month, apologies, as always, for it has been a while.
Evangelism in a funny thing in South Africa. In this culture many people would call themselves Christians and go to church. However, there are many false teachers in South Africa, who though claiming to teach the gospel of Christ actually preach a mixture of works religion and prosperity gospel. In this context often our aim is to teach those who consider themselves to be Christians what the true gospel of Jesus is and the free grace of God which is held out to them.
