Our programme for February and March includes two community events. In February we have a Community Forum and in March we have an evening with the priests of the Southern African Region.
In February, on Sunday 24th we will hold a Community Forum from 11h00 to 12h30. This Forum will form part of our looking forward to our 100th birthday in 2022, but it will also be specifically about our structures: The Sending, the Trustee Body and our KZN PBO. By then, the long awaited transfer of 2 Kangelani Way from The Christian Community in Natal Trust (Property Trust) to The Christian Community KZN PBO will have been effected. The property (and the loan liability) will now reside in the books of the PBO. This will allow the old trust (The Christian Community in Natal Trust) to be dissolved. We, along with the whole Region as partner, have been responsible for the property and the loans from the purchase of Kangelani Way in 2009. Now, ten years on, the property will be reflected in our overall accounts along with the day-to-day costs we have borne from the beginning: rates, electricity, maintenance, etc., and the income from our rentals.
In March we are hosting a Regional Synod. Kine Voigts from Windhoek, Richard Goodall from Cape Town and Reingard Knausenberger from Johannesburg will be with us from Sunday night 10th March to lunchtime on Friday 15th March. At 7.30pm on Thursday 14th March we shall have a Community Evening where the priests will be addressing how to prepare for 2022 and how to celebrate where we are now. We shall be welcoming Class One children to our Children’s Service on Sunday, 24th February. This will be an exciting day as we are already gathering more than ten children a week for our Children’s Service.
