Connect

Where & how we meet

WHERE DO WE MEET?

Connect Church is based in Cape Town and has four thriving congregations that meet across two locations in the city. Three of the congregations meet in Meadowridge at 136 Ladies Mile Road, and the newest meets in Muizenberg on the Corner of Main & School Roads, next door to the CCFM Radio Station.

HOW DO WE 'DO' CHURCH?

Coming to a church for the very first time can be quite daunting, especially if you’re not sure where you fit in. At Connect Church, our four congregations have their own character and style  – but all generally follow a similar format.

All our meetings begin by worshipping in song, followed by a brief welcome and news of what is happening in the life of the church. This time also includes an opportunity for regular members to give financially as they feel lead. We often continue worship before the speaker of the week shares a relevant, Bible-based message to the congregation. The service ends with more singing, and an opportunity for prayer and ministry time. The whole meeting lasts about an hour and a quarter and there is then plenty of time afterwards to chat with others over a cup of tea or coffee, or even a meal.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT: To live out the teachings of Jesus, in the power of the Holy Spirit by: worshiping God, developing believers,  caring for people, presenting the gospel, and being a base for world mission and social upliftment.

WHICH MEETING IS FOR ME?

Three congregations meet at our Meadowridge location on a Sunday at 8am, 10am and 6pm:

DURING PEAK SUMMER HOLIDAYS (18 Dec – 3 Jan) OUR 8am & 10am SERVICES ARE COMBINED IN ONE 9am MEETING ON A SUNDAY MORNING.

  • The 8am meeting is a traditional service that mixes contemporary and hymnal worship, with a strong emphasis on Bible-based teaching. Many of our older folk enjoy this service.
  • The 10am meeting is a vibrant, contemporary service that is 100% family oriented, with Youth Church and Kids Church running simultaneously to the main service. The children meet in our two multi-purpose halls and the high schoolers gather at nearby 18 Orlando Way.
  • The 6pm meeting is geared towards our youth, students, young adults and anyone young at heart who enjoy modern worship, a vibrant atmosphere and interactive teachings. Begin or end this service with free coffee in our Connect Cafe, or stay for a meal.

 

Our fourth congregation meets in Muizenberg next door to the CCFM Radio Station at 9:30am:

  • The 9.30am meeting is an intimate and relaxed service that is growing and actively reaching the Muizenberg community. There is also a Sunday School for children that runs simultaneously.
WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS?

Friday night is Kids Night at Connect Church, with three age-appropriate youth groups meeting throughout the evening. All our youth ministries are run by passionate and godly young adults who feel called to serve the children of the community in this way.

  • ELEVATE serves our Grade 1-5s and meets between 6 and 7.30pm.
  • IMPACT serves our Grade 6-7s and meets between 7.30 and 9pm.
  • UNION serves all our high schoolers (Grades 8-12) and meets between 7.30 and 10pm.
