Sharing Christ, Serving the City

Tamboerskloof Community Church is a new, Christ-centred church plant for the people of Tamboerskloof and surrounds.

For the past fifty years, the Stadtmission am Kap (City Mission: Cape Town) has met here in Tamboerskloof as a church for the German community in Cape Town and surrounding areas. While thankful to God for this heritage and trusting in him for many more years of faithful ministry, the German congregation felt called to reach out to the non-German-speaking community around them.

While the Stadtmission am Kap continues to minister to the German community, the decision was made to begin a new church focused on the local community; Tamboerskloof Community Church. Our church plant is focused on serving the city around us both practically and spiritually, by partnering with others to make the city a great place to live for all, and by faithfully proclaiming and living out the Gospel.

In partnership with REACH-SA, the congregation of the Stadtmission am Kap has called Matthew Courtney to lead this project, with the assistance and support of their church council and minister, Harald Wenzel. Matt and his wife Kendra share their love for the city and for this neighbourhood that God has called them to serve. We hope and pray that this church plant will be a blessing to our city.

Our Mission

Evangelism / Discipleship / Growth


Our first step is to go out and meet our neighbours, sharing the gospel through genuine personal relationships. 


Our next step will be to begin small groups where we can spend time building a faithful community around God’s Word.


When we are ready, we will begin regular church services, continuing to grow community around God’s Word through evangelism and discipleship.
