New Beginnings, New Church

14 May

Up until now, SC and I attended different churches in Cape Town. Churches we started attended before we were a couple. But as we embark on this journey together, and prepare to start our new life together, it simply won’t do going to two different churches, alternating, juggling, and trying to give two communities our full commitment.

Of course, both of us would want to stay at our respective churches. Neither of us would want to leave to join the other’s permanently, we would want the other to come to our church. And so we decided that the most diplomatic thing was, naturally, for both of us to leave our churches, and go to a new one altogether.

This past weekend we had our final service at SC’s church, Point Community. And the weekend before, our last service at my church, The Church of the Good Shepherd, Protea.

It was an emotional goodbye both times, but we know we have made the right decision.

We’ll be going to Holy Trinity in Gardens. We have visited there once of twice before, and everyone is welcoming and friendly, and the church really suits both of us very well. We’ll be doing pre-marital counseling there, and it is truly exciting looking forward to embarking on this very exciting journey with God by our side.

    That’s my church 🙂 And, I must say, Holy Trinity really is a wonderful place – you’ll be very happy with us. And what an exciting time you have ahead of you! x
