KREUZKIRCHE

BELLVILLE, WESTERN CAPE

Pastor Schalk Treurnicht

Our worship services form the heart of our congregational life, with a more informal English service once a week and formal German and Afrikaans services once a month. Although services in more free forms are conducted occasionally (such as youth- or family services), the order of the service follows a well structured Liturgy which forms an important and valuable part of the Lutheran Worship Service. The Liturgy is responsive prayer of the assembled congregation, and the most important parts of it are taken directly from the Bible. The Liturgy can thus be seen as the prayed Word of God.
