Our Mission

To make and grow disciples for the Glory of God.

Our Beliefs

Christ Church Newlands is a Reformed, Evangelical church.
By Reformed, we mean that Christianity is based on the Bible alone. Salvation is found through Christ alone and by grace alone. We believe that we are saved by faith alone and all our glory goes to God alone.
By Evangelical, we mean that there is only One God, who has spoken to us through the Bible. It means we believe that Jesus died and rose again to deal with our rejection of God as King, and will physically return one day to judge the whole world.
By Church, we mean that we are to meet with other Christians, to pray together and most importantly, to hear God speak to us through the reading and explaining of the Bible.


History of Christ Church Newlands

Christ Church Newlands was started in 1979, by Rev. William Farr, and his wife Freda. In 1990, the Rev. Raj Moodley was ordained and he succeeded Rev. Farr as the rector of the church. In 2009, Rev. Raj Moodley was elected to the office of Bishop and in 2012, Rev. Jonathan Moonien joined the church as the Assistant Minister. At the beginning of 2017, Jonathon moved to Pinetown. 

Initially, the church met in a caravan and the search began for a suitable site. The site for the church building was acquired in 1996 and in 1998 the new Church building collapsed. In the same year the Sunday School buildings were erected. After the collapse of the first Church building, through the Lord's intervention in providing 2 major donations, the current Church building was completed in 1999. The construction of the hall was taken to roof height, and remained uncompleted for 3 years. Once again, through prayer and action, we received donations from the congregation and other churches which led to the completion of the Hall in 2004. The construction of the office block began in 2006, with the first storey being completed in 2008. The second storey and roof were completed in December 2014.
