Church Life

We take seriously the “one another” commands in the New Testament and, as a result, have various ministries focused on growing in our understanding and application of those commands.

These ministries include:

  • Prayer meeting every Saturday morning and Sunday before the service
  • Home groups on each side of the Msunduzi river (Clarendon and Hayfields) every week
    **Combined online during COVID-19 lockdown
  • Men’s breakfast once a month
    **Cancelled during COVID-19 lockdown
  • Women’s meetings once a month
  • Young Adults / Student meetings frequently arranged
  • Biblical Counselling as the need arises


In addition to the ministries focussing on edifying the saints, we as a church are burdened for those who are not part of the body of Christ. From its founding days, Living Hope Baptist Church has been engaged in and praying for local and global outreach.
