We are committed to equipping and helping our members to grow in Christ through the various ministries we offer. These ministries also give members of St Cyprian’s Church the opportunity to get involved and serve within the church by using their various talents and gifts.
Toddlers and children up to Grade 7 can enjoy Sunday School during the 09h45 Sunday service. Here, children can delight worship and an age-appropriate bible lesson. In the June/July school holidays, we also host the Retreat Holiday Club, which has a program for one week focusing on taking the children on a journey to improve their spiritual lives and their knowledge of God’s Word.
For teenagers, we have our Senior Youth on a Friday evening. High school students are invited to socialise, have fun, learn and share lessons. Our Senior Youth runs all year round, except during school holidays. During the June/July holidays, we host a Teen Program as part of the Retreat Holiday Club. This involves running daily programs for one week for our Senior Youth members.
This is a recent addition to our ministries. The Young Adults ministry, for ages 18 to 35, meet twice a month, known as Second Sundays. Members can enjoy fellowship, worship and sharing the word, as well as social activities.
Our Seniors Guild for senior citizens meets the first Saturday of every second month. Different organisations cater a lunch for them, and they also have a short service and a chance to fellowship with one another.
There are a host of ministries available for women at St. Cyprian’s. One of these is the Anglican Women’s Fellowship (AWF), who meet regularly to create fellowship and ministry aligned towards women. There is also our Mothers Union, which has ministry focused on parenting and supporting mothers in the community.
For men, our premier ministry is our Men’s Prayer Group. They meet every Monday to pray for members of the congregation and community, and to fellowship together.
Within our Pastoral Care ministry, we have the Thursday Care Group who provide meals for the hungry and disadvantaged on Thursdays, the Area Pastorate that visits the ill and housebound within their designated areas, and the Prayer Counselors who provide prayer and support for parishioners.
