South Africa Sister Church

 

Our South African Sister Church Relationship

Since 2006, we have enjoyed a Sister Church relationship with Evaton Noord Uniting Reformed Church in Southern Africa (URCSA). It is located in the Vanderbijlpark area of Gauteng Province, South Africa. This congregation of about 300 members comes from surrounding townships. It has its own sister church, the Poortjie URCSA, in the Poortjie township about 30 km northwest of Evaton Noord. This small sister church has about 100 members.

Paster Swart Booysen and his wife Maria had shepherded both of these churches. Swart went home to be with his Lord on October 16, 2016.  

Swart established an after-church feeding program for children. His wife, Maria, continues to support the programs he started and that is financially supported by our church here in Seattle.
