The New Apostolic Church in Wavecrest, Strandfontein celebrated its 25th anniversary with a two-day event held on the church grounds.

Starting with an open day on Saturday 12 November, the church also hosted an exhibition with pictures and memories from the past 25 years, followed by an outdoor concert and fun day that featured refreshments, jumping castles and other entertainment.

The event attracted hundreds of visitors, former congregants and neighbours.

The celebrations continued on the Sunday with a special service conducted by Apostle Marc Diedricks, followed by a music hour featuring the church’s choir.

The weekend was filled with various celebrations, including the 78th birthday of retired Priest Sam Maritz.

Maritz is also one of the pioneers of the church congregation as he was a minister at the official inauguration 25 years ago.
