Dear Friend,

What a privilege to be a part of an exciting new season, and what an honour to be a part of God’s family! It is with great excitement that we invite you to join us on our journey of discipleship for 2018. As we embark on this exciting journey together, may we be reminded that discipleship is not the goal, but only the result of a life lived in Christ! Let our goal be to enjoy every God-moment with our Lord and grow in our knowledge and love for Him. Therefore, let our vision be to do it together as fellow believers – The heart of the Pastoral Care Department!


We believe that every person matters and our prayer for you is that as you give yourself to Him and this exciting journey, that you will find yourself becoming more and more like Jesus. In addition, may you find yourself useful in your Father’s hands as He uses you to help others in this exciting and life-changing process.

With great excitement,

Ps Erik & Corne van Rhyn

About Life Groups


Life Groups are the fundamental lifestyle of HCCN. In weekly Life Group meetings members participate in the life of the Church, spend time fellowshipping, worshipping, discussing the Bible, praying for and serving one another, and reaching out to our communities.

Ultimately, a Life Group is the place where spiritual growth and true discipleship takes place. Life Groups gather mostly on Thursday evenings, starting at 19h00 in homes across the city, which are used as the venues for these gatherings. We also have Sunday Life Groups, which meet after the second morning service at the Church.

For more information on a Life Group close to you, contact the church office at 012 542 9000 or email Pastor Erik van Rhyn on erik@hccnorth.co.za
