ABOUT

OUR HISTORY

 

The Durbanville Forum was established through pastors from the various denominations around Durbanville meeting up and building relationships over a number of years.

 

In 2014 this group of pastors joined the Durbanville Moedergemeente’s drive, called the “Good and Beautiful Community”, which resulted in a D4J (Durbanville For Jesus) Campaign. Eventually it was decided to permanently replace the Durbanville Forum with D4J, which encompasses any local church dedicated to the gospel of Jesus Christ, and is therefore designed to bring about unity in the Body of Christ in Durbanville.

OUR NAME

 

The declaration in the name is simply that we, as a community in Durbanville, stand for Jesus, His Kingdom and His purposes. We celebrate His Presence and His Kingdom in Durbanville and agree to worship and praise His name openly for what He has done for us.

 

OUR LOGO

 

The light bulb symbolises that we believe God wants us, as a community of believers in Durbanville, to arise and shine in His glory!

 

Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.

Isaiah 60:1-3 (NKJV)

 

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5:14-16

2018 CAMPAIGN

We are excited to announce that this year’s theme is “Living an Invitational Lifestyle”. The world runs on stories, e.g. people’s life stories, Hollywood stories, news, etc. But the greatest and most important story is God’s story: a story of redemption and restoration. The best part of His story is that each of us has an active role to play in it. This year we are taking hands with the Alpha Course to, as a community, take a closer look at how we can live out His story in a way that will invite others to join in.

 

What makes the campaign different this year, is that we are dividing it into 3 phases:

 

Phase 1 (May) – 4 Week sermon series with small group discussions and various events.

Phase 2 (June) – Alpha course host training.

Phase 3 (July & August) – Alpha course.

 

Phase 2 and 3 are optional, but it would be great if you can join numerous churches already committed to running the course in August.  We are expectant for God to impact our community in an amazing way over the next few months.  Click here for more information about the campaign.
