Our church was planted in 2007 by Reverand Peter Makapela and his wife Mpumi. The church is situated in a Township known as Nomzamo in Strand just opposite Somerset West. Our church belongs to family called REFORMED EVANGELICAL ANGLICAN CHURCH OF SOUTH AFRICA (REACH SA).

We believe that the is only one way that people can have a relationship with God, it is through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. we are a bible believing church, that is what we uphold as the motto of our denomination says: "THY WORD ABOVE ALL." We are also passionate about restoring new testament church through house church. We also strongly believe that our church should be the light in this community where the is poverty, high unemployment rate and high levels of illiteracy. Through the projects we do we want to adress these and many other issues.

Peter grew up in the Eastern Cape, and came to Cape Town where he became a Christian. After becoming involved at Mandela Park Community Church in Khayelitsha, he was encouraged to go into full time ministry, and graduated from George Whitefield College in 2004. He received a call from Christ Church Somerset west to plant a church in the Nomzamo township in Somerset West, and Christ Church Strand is now a fully established church with a day care centre. 

Peter is married to Mpumi and they have three daughters.
Peter is a keen evangelist and is always looking for opportunities to share the gospel.
