RCSS update: September 2022

Dear Friend of RCSS

We are heading into spring here on the southern tip of Africa. Flowers are starting to bloom and the days are getting longer. This change of season coincides with new beginnings for RCSS.

In our previous update, we shared about the potential of a joining a new Presbyterian and Reformed work in South Africa. Talks continue along these lines. At the same, we are also exploring more seriously the possibility of the formation of a new English medium Reformed denomination under the oversight of the United Reformed Churches in North America (URCNA). To this end, Rev. Jooste will travel to the United States to attend the URCNA Classis South-West in Colorado from 12 to 14 September and the General Synod in New York from 17 to 21 October. Between Classis and Synod, he will be preaching and presenting at various URCNA churches and theological institutions, including Westminster Seminary, California.

A highlight for us in recent months has been several new member candidates working through the Heidelberg Catechism, many of whom have come from Pentecostal backgrounds.

Yours for reformation in South Africa on behalf of RCSS.

Rev. Simon Jooste
