PUB RESTORED INTO A CHURCH - Salem Danville, Pretoria, South Africa


Salem Danville's first service was under a carport on the 1st of March 2009 with 6 people. We started because the people of Danville spoke a need of a Biblical, relevant and alive church.

In December of 2009 we took over an old pub in Danville and renovated it into our church - a miracle done by God! Today we minister to about 100 people, 30 teenagers and 60 children.
Danville is a poor area in Pretoria West, South Africa - unique in a sense that there is poor people of all cultures and races.

Our vision - to bring His Peace and restoration to the people of Danville. To show them that your circumstances do not dictate God's love for you. Jesus loves all, no matter who you are, what you've done, or how much money you have!

Share the joy of ministering to the poor with us in this blog!

Birthdays are important to Him!

Birthdays are always a time of celebration, gifts and cards. I had the privilege to celebrate my birthday this Sunday.

I love everything about birthdays, but I especially love birthday cards. It is special to read the words that come from someone’s heart. I don’t know what are the most cards you’ve ever received. I always receive a few from my loved ones and friends. But Sunday after church I received a big surprise!

The children of our church were very busy. Each and every one of them made me a birthday card! It took me about twenty minutes just to read through each special hand-made card. There must be about sixty cards! It really made me feel very special.

Through this I experienced something of God’s love and goodness for me. This made me think of a Scripture in the Message:

Psalm 36:5-6(MSG)
 5-6 God's love is meteoric,
      his loyalty astronomic,
      His purpose titanic,
      his verdicts oceanic.
      Yet in his largeness
      nothing gets lost;
      Not a man, not a mouse,
      slips through the cracks.

His love and loyalty is bigger than you can ever imagine. Sometimes you must look at the ocean to realize His greatness. Other times He will send you sixty birthday cards to show you His love!

However He chooses to show you His love and loyalty, just know that in His bigness, that even your birthday is important to Him!
