A Remarkable Continent

Nelson Mandela dreamt “of an African that is at peace with itself”. So do we. And we know that is only possible through Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace. And we know that the primary way that He comes to African’s is through planting and strengthening churches. This is what we do.

Africa is the world's second-largest continent, covering 20% of the earth’s total land area. Africa contains well over 1 billion people - about 15% of the world's human population. And significantly, Africa's population is the youngest among all the continents with 50% of Africans aged 19 years or younger.

What nations are we currently working in?

We are currently active in South Africa, Kenya, Madagascar and Tanzania. We also partner with other like-minded movements in other African countries.

Below you can find out more about upcoming events while also viewing a list of partner churches throughout Africa here.


Rigby Wallace and Steve Van Rhyn give a lead to our partnership in Africa.

Annual Continent Gathering

Church Plants in Africa

Tanzania: Dar es Salaam

In 2012 Sheshi and Trudi Kaniki relocated from Johannesburg to Dar es Salaam to plant a church. God’s Tribe Church is making good progress and towards the end of 2016 the first elders were appointed. Please contact for more information.

Kenya: Nairobi

Nairobi is a vibrant and innovative African city, with a tremendous amount of influence on the rest of East Africa. At the start of 2016 three families embarked on the adventure of planting the church with the intention of bringing the gospel to life for this generation of Nairobians! In January 2017 the church was formally launched and got off to a great start. For more information on how you can pray, give or get involved in this new church please contact the Nairobi leader, Mbonisi Malaba.

South Africa: Cape Town: Sea Point

On 12 February 2017, Common Ground Church launches a new missional community site into Sea Point, Cape Town. A core team of 50 people, predominantly from the InnerCity and Rondebosch congregations met together to pray and be equipped for the start of this new community. The launch was a great success with about 230 people attending. This missional community hopes to reach the people of Sea Point with the gospel and life changing message of Jesus.

South Africa: Cape Town: Cape Town City Centre

In September 2016, Jubilee Community Church launched their first plant into Cape Town’s city centre. Lex and Jo Loizides, along with Ryan and Sachi Saville, lead the new congregation that meets in a beautifully renovated church building. The City Bowl is the epicentre of Cape Town’s artistic, economic and cultural life, and Jubilee Community Church hopes to become a vibrant gospel community in the area for generations to come.

South Africa: Cape Town: Tableview

In Jan 2015 Common Ground Church in Cape Town planted another congregation in Tableview. Although this will be a congregation of Common Ground Church, we consider congregation plants and autonomous church plants as the same thing in terms of wanting to mobilize people, prayer and finance. If you would like to relocate to be part of this exciting new church, or require any other information, please contact

South Africa: Johannesburg: Tembisa / DaveytonSouth Africa: Cape Town: Table View

NK and Tumi Mahlanyane who planted and lead God First Church Tembisa are in the early stages of dreaming and planning a plant into the township of Daveyton. Please contact if you would like to be part of the planting team, or help out in anyway including giving financially.

South Africa: Johannesburg: Braamfontein / Downtown

Being in striking distance of two main universities and the rejuvenating downtown area, this is vital part of the city in which to plant churches. We planted a new church there in January 2016 and are now looking to move to a new permanent venue in the city centre. Please contact Greg Tait for more information.

South Africa: Johannesburg: Mid Rand

The Mid Rand area situated between Johannesburg and Pretoria is the fastest growing suburb in South Africa so it is no surprise that God First Fourways Church planted a new church in the Mid Rand area. A team of 30+ people launched the church in January 2017 led by Jacques and Megan Adamo. For more information contact Stephen Jack.

South Africa: East London

Stirling Baptist have recently re-planted a congregation into the suburb of Sunnyridge. Although this will be a congregation of Stirling Baptist Church, we consider congregation plants and autonomous church plants as the same thing in terms of wanting to mobilize people, prayer and finance. If you would like to relocate to be part of this exciting new church, or require any other information, please contact
