Andrew Murray Johannesburg has been a community of faith within the Christian tradition and the Nederduits Gereformeerde family of churches, marked by the core value of radical inclusion, since 1966.

For the past 49 years, we have sought to be a safe place of belonging to a large variety of people and have attempted to not judge people based on race, class, gender or sexual orientation.

We find the recent developments in the NG Kerk's General Synod with regard to same sex relationships regrettable, since the initial decision made by Synod on the 9th of October 2015 was to our mind (and heart) a move in the direction of embodying the Good News of God's great love for all humankind.

We are in favour of people to be allowed the kinds of spaces where they may express their most intimate relationships. We envision lasting covenental bonds, in which God's blessing is made manifest, where faithfulness is sought and where mutual respect and loving kindness are visible.

We will continue to work towards this cause, since we believe that the will of God includes humankind's well-being.

Dagbestuur, Andrew Murray JHB
