Youth

C.O.R.E. Youth Church is for teenagers who feel that they are too old for Sunday School and too young for Church. C.O.R.E. stands for – Christ Our Redeemer Everlasting. The C.O.R.E. group meets in the Church Hall Upper Gallery every Sunday at 9:00am to discuss the Bible and it’s relevancy in their lives. 

A leadership team of C.O.R.E. members have been chosen to organize and lead a youth event for primary school children between the ages of 9 and 13 years old. The main goal of the youth is to grow the current Sunday School and secondly to establish a strong connection between the children that attend Sunday School and the teenagers that attend C.O.R.E. The leadership team consists of Cherise Enslin and Chad Erasmus.

The Sunday School membership, although small, provides Bible teaching to children every Sunday at 9:00am. Our Sunday School teachers seeks to provide practical Biblical teaching to our children.

Women’s Association (W.A.)

In March 1964 St Davids Women’s Association was formed and a WA Constitution was proposed which would make the WA a semi-autonomous body  functioning as a para-church organ of St Davids.  While the records in our archives indicate that the WA did not formalise the proposed constitution of 1964, it nevertheless impacted the development of the church and for decades formed the “backbone” of our fellowship with regular takeaway suppers and socials.

A revival and new constitution was adopted at the ladies meeting on Tuesday 18th February 2020.  Laura Speed was nominated as the  WA Honorary President with Val Dunn being elected as Chairlady, Diane Schoeman as Secretary, Milly Larkin as Treasurer and Eileen Milton as a representative board member. 

The ladies of St Davids have been working non-stop in their outreach endeavours to the needy with the support of the congregation who enthusiastically rally to their call.

Care & Outreach Teams

We at St Davids are passionate about people and therefore offer support to communities who are suffering hardships and are indigent. Through the dedicated and loving work of our congregation, spearheaded by our active Women’s Association, St Davids supports various outreach programmes, and is able to reach out to those less fortunate, fulfilling the Lord’s mandate – to love our neighbours and serve His people.

Our Social Outreach comprises of volunteers from our congregation, spearheaded by our active Women’s Association, who assist in meeting practical and spiritual needs of those who might not necessarily have access to them. Members of our congregation, community and local businesses donate goods towards our Food Parcel & Clothing Bank project which we distribute to those who are in need within our community. Tracts (English, Afrikaans and Xhosa), Bibles, booklets and dvds/cds from our church resource material are also included.

Visitation

We are social beings, and therefore need interaction with likeminded people. There are however times that due to illness, injury or frailty some will not be able to attend the weekly Services and Bible study held at the church.

Our Minister and Pastoral Care Representative is available to visit folk in their homes for prayer and encouragement.
