Rustenburg – The once beautiful church building of Hervormde Gemeente Rustenburg-Kloof is a sad reminder of that fateful day when this beacon of the community was reduced to ash and bare walls on 25 November 2018. 

But hope stands strong!  

In an interview with Platinum Weekly this week, reverend Nardus Enslin said: “Our congregation was devastated. A massive fire gutted our church – a place where we gather for God, a place of comfort and a beacon of hope to the homeless.

We will rebuild. It is heartbreaking to think that our church was reduced to rubble. We know a rebuild will not happen overnight, but we trust that God will bless us to restore our place of worship where we will continue to glorify His holy name.” 

The congregation and reverend Enslin are not backing down. They are going to host a golf day to raise funds for the repair and rebuild of their church. They will appreciate any assistance from the community through participation, donations, sponsorships or prizes for the day.

The golf day is set for Friday 1 March at the Rustenburg Golf Club and will start at 10:00. Kevin Leo will be performing during the evening. To sponsor a tee amounts to R2 000 and to sponsor a hole is R1 000. Any other donations are welcome.

The costs to join in on the fun is R3 000 per four ball, golf cart and halfway-lunch included. The format of this game will be better-ball-scramble-drive 2 score, 2 count, with exciting prizes for a hole-in-one on number three.
