Eden Salt River is go!

Over the last few months, Message South Africa in partnership with Cape Town’s Jubilee Community Church has been recruiting a core team, and recently announced the appointment of Grant Porthen as Eden Salt River’s team leader.

Now the 13 team members are undergoing a period of training and preparation led by Message SA national director, Tim Tucker (pictured far right), ahead of moving into into the area.

‘This is a major stride forward for Eden in South Africa,’ says Tim. ‘What is really amazing about this team is the diversity of their backgrounds and experience… we are certain they’ve been hand-picked by God.’

Eden Salt River will be officially commissioned on Sunday 26th October at Jubilee Community Church to coincide with the visit of Andy Hawthorne and Sam Ward (Eden Director UK). We will also be having our Eden conference, "Proximity", on Saturday 25th October. More news about Proximity will be available soon.
