Welcome to Lyndhurst Baptist Church

A multi-cultural church of believers following Jesus Christ


Acts 20:32
So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

Our ministry in word and deed is geared towards encouraging people. We preach the Scriptures inspirationally and practically to help people in their walk with the Lord.

Explosive Worship

1 Chronicles 16:23
Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day.

Starting with a lifestyle of worship we do join for corporate celebrative praise to God through Jesus and by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Being a missional church and multicultural - various styles and languages are employed.


Matthew 28:19
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit

From start to finish the Bible communicates the 'good news' of God's redemption. Jesus came as the incarnation of the 'good news' and mandated that we as the Church share the Gospel with everyone. All we do should be in some measure evangelistic.

Engaging Community

1 Thessalonians 5:14
And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone.

We believe the Church engages in ministry and care within the community every day. Our projects feed the hungry and uplift the poor. We also support established community efforts within our sphere of influence.

Discipleship Classes


To make disciples by establishing believers in the biblical foundational truths of the Christian faith .

Discipleship Classes

Ministry leader: Steady Kumwenda

Our vision is to make disciples by establishing believers in the biblical foundational truths of the Christian faith and living for the disciples to make disciples.

We aim to establish the believers through the foundational teachings of the faith and what it means to be a Christian through bible studies, drawing practical lessons from scriptures on how disciples of Christ made disciples, praying together, fellowship and reaching out to others.

(Discipleship class meets on Wednesday at 19:00 at the church premises)

Worship Ministry


At LBC we see worship as a daily part of our lives to be uplifted encouraged and strengthened.

Worship Ministry

Ministry leader: Byron Govender

Our Vision as a worshipping community at LBC is taken from William Temple’s known quote on worship:

“Submission of all our nature to God! to quicken the Conscience by his Holiness! Nourishment of our mind by his truth! Purifying our imagination by his beauty! Opening our heart, to his love! Submission of our Will to his Purpose! All this gathered up in adoration is the greatest of Human expressions”

LBC sees Worship as a daily part of our lives, and want to ensure that whatever week we have, we can come to a Sunday service and be uplifted encouraged and strengthened by the Word of God, Spiritual Songs, Hymns and Psalms. So we can go into the next week being feed, filled, and fresh by our time with fellow believers in Christ Jesus.

Womens Ministry


The purpose of the womens ministry is to uplift each other in prayer and the word of God.

Womens Ministry

Ministry leader: Susan Habanyane

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised (Proverbs 31:30)

The purpose of our group is to uplift each other in prayer and the word of God.

We meet on a Saturday every month (15H00-17H00).

We have a day of prayer and fast every first Friday of the month ending with a prayer meeting at church at 19h00.

We also have a WhatsApp group where we post devotions, prayer requests and notices.

Mens Fellowship


Enabling men to discover their God given gifts that will then be directed towards the work of God.

Mens Fellowship

Ministry leader: Graham Ganesh

The vision statement of ministry is to create an enabling environment for the Men at LBC to better understand God’s will for their lives and their responsibility towards their Families, the Church of God and the Community. To enable the LBC Men to discover their God given gifts that will then be directed towards the work of God.

The men meet every first Saturday of the month for a time of Prayer, Devotion and a time of discussion around “Mens” topics. The morning will begin with a hearty breakfast and networking time amongst themselves. Activities will be arranged from time to time to build up the relation with each other.

LBC Youth


Helping young people to not only know the word for themselves but to live out the word.

LBC Youth

Our vision is to grow young people who not only know the word for themselves but live out the word in a real-life context outside of the youth group; our vision is basically three words. Believe, Become and Behave.

Believe - we hope to see every single one of our youth give their lives to Christ.

Become - a part of the church that is active in serving in various ministries and become leaders that will, in turn, become future pastors and ministers in the church.

Behave - we believe an encounter with Christ changes everything. We want to encourage godly living in every part of the young person’s life.

Leading young people to Christ through gatherings, discussions, trips and relationships that bring glory to Christ in the community which is something that a lot of young people are looking for. We hope to be that for you.

We meet on Fridays at 17:30-20:00 at the top hall. Please use the bottom gate on Morkel road.

Sunday School


We at LBC believe the children belong to God and are a gift from Him.
