In accordance with Phase Three regulations, we will be having limited services from Sunday, 7 June. Everyone is required to register online. Please contact the church office at office@antioch.org.za for further information.

We hope to see you soon!


Sunday: 10am and 6pm Live-streams

To help our church family continue to honour the Lord’s Day, on Sunday we plan to live-stream from church for two different services at 10am and 6pm. Nothing can replace the sweetness of corporate worship, but we are confident you will still be encouraged by these special times of singing, prayer, and the preaching of God’s Word if you cannot make it to church!

The live-streams can be found through the Antioch YouTube Channel, and should also be embedded in this page shortly before the starting time (you may need to refresh this page).

For the kids

Parents, you probably have seen the “Pastor’s Pal” pages we make available to help kids follow along during the sermon. You can download a copy here to print at home. After the service, we invite you to send a photo of your child’s page to the preacher – it’s always an encouragement to see what they’re learning!

Technical difficulties?

Due to increased internet traffic, some people have reported the video stuttering or stopping unexpectedly (“buffering”). If you have these problems, here are two things to try:

  1. Reduce the video quality. Click the ⚙ gear icon on the lower right of the video window and change “Quality” to 144p.
  2. Try pausing the video for 5-10 seconds and then press play again.

If you are unable to watch at all, a good alternative would be to choose a past sermon and watch the video or listen to the audio at home. Here are a few recommendations from the Antioch archives:

  • 16 Dec 2019 – “How to Handle Trials” (video, audio)
  • 03 Jun 2019 – “God’s Best Sermon” (video, audio)
  • 26 Jan 2015 – “Follow the Light” (audio only)
  • 04 Jan 2015 – “Overflowing with Hope” (audio only)

To make our Sunday live-streams and daily devotionals accessible for those with limited data, our sound team endeavors to make an audio version of these videos available for download from the sermons page within 24 hours.


Church’s Open Letter to the President


Daily: Pastoral Devotionals

Starting Thursday 26 March 2020, we will have a short devotional from the pastoral staff keeping us in the Word during the lockdown. While we may be isolated from one another as a body, we trust these will help provide much-needed fuel for your personal and family devotions.

These videos will be posted on this page and on the “Antioch Alerts” WhatsApp groups. Past videos are available here, or audio-only here.


Financial Needs of One Another

The economic impact of the Coronavirus lockdown has presented great opportunities for our church members to meet one another’s basic needs.

If you need financial assistance or advice navigating the impact on your work or business, please refer to this letter from the elders.

If you would like to give (over and above your regular offerings) to help other people in need, contributions to the church’s mercy ministry fund are greatly appreciated! Simply send an EFT to the church’s main account with the designation “Mercy Ministry.” More information can be found in the elders’ letter above.


Other Ways to Remain Involved

Offering

We encourage you to continue giving during this time, even though we may not be meeting regularly. You are still able to participate in this form of worship by EFT. The banking details are here.

Midweek Groups

All other midweek groups (small groups, youth/young adults, Ironmen, etc.) will not be meeting. However, your leaders will be in contact with you and keep you updated on other ways to be involved in spiritual growth and love for one another. Watch the usual communication channels for these groups for updates.

Biblical Counselling

We are confident that the Lord is using these challenging circumstances for the sanctifying of His people and the glory of His name. If you have any spiritual needs or concerns during this time, please don’t hesitate to contact the church office or any of the church leaders. We are eager to serve you however we can.

Further Reading

Pastor Tim preached through Psalm 91 on our last Sunday before the lockdown (22 Mar). Since then, he has written an article to help others properly understand this “most cheering” psalm. You can read it here: Does Psalm 91 Promise Disease Immunity?”
