home fellowship groups amanzimtoti

Rhema Family Christian Centre’s Home Fellowship Groups run once a week on a Tuesday evenings from 7:00pm to 8:00pm.

We are a cell church that patterns itself according to the early church found in Acts 2:42 -47

We are passionate about your personal growth in the Lord, and it is our desire for you to achieve the fullness of what God has called you to be. Our Vision is to disciple and nurture believers to step out into the gifting, talents and calling that the Lord has placed within each of us. Fellowship and the joy of belonging to a caring supportive Fellowship group structure will bring forth a lifetime of friendship and Christian significance in our community.

Our Fellowship groups meet weekly in your area, and welcome you to join us and experience this vibrant way of life. It is important in your Christian walk to stay connected to the body of Christ, which is the local church. If you have not yet connected to a local congregation, we extend a warm welcome to you and your family to prayerfully consider making Rhema Family Christian Centre your spiritual home.
