Sunday’s the Lord’s Day
Our Sunday services are at 8:30am and 10:30am. Sunday School is during the 10:30am service.
Sundays are the day we gather, as the church, to worship our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (Acts 20:7, 1 Corinthians 16:2). It is a command in Scripture (Hebrews 10:25). But it is a delightful duty (Malachi 3:8-10). I hope you’re looking forward to assembling with a joyful heart?
Help us reach our city with the gospel by sharing the details of our services with someone in your world. Your family member. Your friend. Your coworker. Invite your one to church this week.
Over this period, as part of our health and safety protocols, we register attendees at the door. Preregistration is not required.
We’ve fixed our loos
Last week we had a plumbing disaster. Our bathrooms are functional once again. Thanks go out to Etienne, Richard C, Abram, Werner and Tshepo together with Stuart.
Membership and baptism
God’s Church is God’s people. And we, the members of Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni, are His church in this place. We’re people who strive to glorify God, together, proclaiming His Word, in Benoni. Sign up to join membership.
Kids get to learn about Jesus and have fun in our Sunday school. We have a team of dedicated teachers and helpers who love God and love to make Him known to our younger generation. Sunday School is during the 10:30am service. Sign up to join our Sunday School team.
Get involved in evangelism
Evangelism is a core pillar of our church. It’s part of our DNA. Monthly we street preach, we go door to door, we preach at local schools and clinics. Join the CPBC Evangelism WhatsApp group here. This Sunday, after our 8:30am service, we will go door to door evangelism in Crystal Park.
Joseph Scriven penned, “O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear. All because we do not carry, Everything to God in prayer!” Join our prayer meeting on Sunday, 10 October, at 5:00pm, at Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni. We look forward to a time of earnest prayers and petitions before Almighty God.
Our library is your library
Speak to Cat, Tshepo, your Bible study leader, or an elder, after the service to find a good book.

“Live dangerously” by showing hospitality
I know that following Christ means being a part of a local church. And being a part of a local church means sometimes doing things that make you uncomfortable. Hospitality isn’t easy, but God requires it. So let me encourage you to “live dangerously” by showing hospitality. Listen to Doug Van Meter from Brackenhurst Baptist Church talk about hospitality.
Our church app and church directory
Did you know we have a church app? It’s available on Apple and Android. One of the key features of the app is a directory of members. You can control information shared for you and your family. It’s a great way to know who to pray for in our community.
How to give
Our mission is to glorify God, together, proclaiming His Word, in Benoni. Giving is one way that you can partner with us, even as we partner with God, to make that happen. Giving is a familiar theme throughout Scripture. Our giving is a tremendous privilege, not a heavy burden. It should be anonymous, cheerful and sacrificial in nature.
