Harvest Christian Church

Generations

Harvest is a multi-generational family church made up of physical and spiritual fathers and sons, mom’s and daughter’s, brothers and sisters – people who meet, and connect, and share, and journey, and belong, and grow together – family of God! And just as families gather around the dinner table together, we also all gather together on Sunday to worship and fellowship. And we all gather together for big prayer, worship, and social events. But then also, just as within families the adults will have conversations in the lounge together, and the children will play outside together, and the teens will hang out in the den together, so too as a church, we have different gatherings for different generational groups. This is church family life, and there’s a place and space for everyone!

Kids

Harvest kids ministry is aimed at all children aged 0-12 year old. On Sundays during the main adult service, various kids classes for different age groups gather close-by for age-relevant worship, teaching, and fun activities. Gifted kids leaders have all been well equipped through their Kids Leadership Training year (a program aimed to educate and enable those gifted to lead within children’s church ministry) so you can be assured that every child is in very capable and safe hands. And then the harvest kids Holiday Club is worth mentioning as an annual highlight on the winter calendar!

Youth

Harvest youth ministry is aimed at all teens aged 13-18 years old. On Friday nights at Harvest Walmer from 7-9:30pm youth involves high energy praise and worship, a relevant message, and enough time to just hang out (which may include hot chocolate, braai’d marshmallows, table-tennis, and water-balloon volleyball)! Youth leaders stay well connected with teens, establishing God-centered relationships to impact their sometimes crazy daily lives! Throughout the year there are also youth camps and other activities to look forward to.

Young adults

Harvest young adults ministry is aimed at under 30’s but out-of-schoolers. Young adults meet in connect groups across the city and for various social events throughout the year, with The Balcony evenings in the Upper Room at Harvest Walmer being a regular young adult highlight (and strictly out of bounds for teens and older adults)!

Ladies

Harvest ladies ministry serves to connect ladies and to minister to their individual and collective needs within the church. All the ladies of Harvest make up this ministry, which really exists to express our collective praise of Jesus and grow our relationship with Him by meeting the unique needs of women. We believe that it is really important for ladies to find a place to connect, belong and serve. In doing so many precious relationships form, which call out the best in each other and encourage one another to reach new heights in our walk with our Savior. There are a number of different areas for ladies to get involved in at Harvest. Please connect in to the areas that appeal most to you:

Seniors

Harvest seniors ministry is for anyone over the age of 55 and is aimed at connecting many elderly people within the church. Seniors meet every Tuesday morning from 10-11:30am at Harvest Walmer for a wonderful time of fellowship, worship, fun and encouragement. A message is also shared and there are often interesting talks from different church ministries and experts from various walks of life. Our seniors ministry is wonderfully led by Ed and Crystol Walker.
