Ephesians 4:16 describes the church as an organic body growing in health and maturity as each part does its work.  It is the body of Christ that is given for the sake of the world.


We are called to a 3-dimensional life in Jesus Christ: in relationship to God, to one another and, in serving those around us.




Mission (from Latin mittere, to send) describes a specific task or duty assigned to a person or group of persons.  We are called to missions that lie within the purposes of God (God’s Mission) and also faithfully represent God’s character and rule. CHS is involved in local and global mission through members and partners.

Egbert Wessels leads the CHS Mission team to help us direct our prayer, support and giving.

CHS supports two ‘workers in the field’:

  • Katie Christie spent time on the YWAM Mercy Ship and is now pioneering a maternity hospital in Sierra Leone.
  • Johann Kikillus spent time working in the Maximum security prison of Pollsmoor under the banner of Hope Prison Ministry where his main focus was reaching out to drug addicts and gangsters. At the end of 2009 he started work in Aftercare amongst ex-offenders and their families in Lavender Hill.. This initiative has resulted in the birth of support groups called Hope Support Group meetings.  The Lavender Hill groups are aimed specifically at ex- offenders, gangsters, addicts and their families who otherwise would never set their foot into a church.

CHS is actively involved in a number of outreach programmes including:
