We’re Godfirst. A church based in Parktown North, Joburg filled with ordinary people serving an extraordinary God.


what we believe

We believe that there is one God, infinite, eternal, all powerful, holy, loving and true who exists in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We hold to the teachings of the Bible above all as we believe it to be God’s inspired revelation of Himself carrying his full authority. At minimum it is an operating manual for our city, our lives and beyond life. 

Where we meet

Our church building is nestled in the beautiful neighbourhood of Parktown North on the border of Parkhurst. This is where our office is situated and where our services take place 9am and 6pm every Sunday. We also have a service on the University of the Witwatersrand (WITS) East campus during term at 6pm on Sundays.

We can do more together

We love God, love Joburg, and love to help people get the order in life right – which starts with putting God first. St Augustine said, ‘When our lives are not rightly ordered, our hearts are restless until they find their rest in God’. We are a church with a remarkable blend of people – young, old, black, white, rich and poor, and we delight in both the Word and the Spirit. And, we would love to help you. And maybe you could help us too. We can do more together than apart.
