We develop, facilitate and manage networks, partnerships and activities as agreed by the three churches (Dutch Reformed Church in South Africa [DR Church Western Cape], URCSA Cape Regional Synod and the Reformed Church in Africa), on the basis of the Witness Ministry’s regulation (cf Regl 12b), and as amended and agreed from time to time.

Congregations, presbyteries and sister churches are supported to witness in a missional manner. Partnership-like witness ministries are developed in conjunction with fellow believers from our Dutch Reformed Church Family in the various ministries in and from Africa.

We are an extension of Christian churches that does not represent the preferences or style of one particular denomination. This ministry represents the whole church of Christ in the workplace and as such is aimed at people in their work situations. We are a conscience for the marketplace, supports Christian believers and brings the gospel to unbelievers and is a shoulder for people who are suffering. Industrial Ministry also offers relevant training programmes that not only add value to the lives of individual employees but also contribute to the success of companies and organizations. Our focus areas are seafarers and fishermen (Biblia Harbour Mission), Transnet and Trade & Industry (any place of work).
The Centre for Public Witness wants to bring the gospel to the marketplace in the widest possible sense. It wants to proclaim Jesus Christ’s message of reconciliation but also wants it to be manifested in the most current issues that we have to deal with. It wants to promote talks and dialogue on a local level and it wants to increase the Church’s contacts and networks with the government, the media and businesses.
