Families in the Holy Spirit
Renewing the Face of the Earth.
Couples for Christ started in this parish
in January 2003 with 8 couples.

made up of approx 4-5 couples or 8-10 individuals. Each household

God has raised up Couples for Christ so that
we in turn would rise up in defence of His work. We believe
that the family is a creation of God and no one has any right
to change it, its structure and its purpose. Couples for Christ
is a creation of God distinctly called to bring families back
to the plan of God. "Couples for Christ" is called
to bring the Lord's strength and light to those who are struggling
to be truly Christian families in the modern world.
We believe that God is working powerfully in

for the fullness of times, to sum up all things in Christ,
in heaven and on earth" (Eph 1:10). In this task, God
calls upon Christian families to be light and leaven in the
As such, we as Couples
for Christ are called to be families in the Holy Spirit renewing
the face of the earth. As Christian families we are called
to grow in holiness and discipleship, so that God can use
us as evangelisers and missionaries in order that He might
renew the world.
In this task, we are called
to take up the very mission of Jesus in bringing glad tidings
to the poor. We rise up in defence of the poor and the oppressed.
We struggle for peace, justice and the integrity of creation.
We work for total human liberation in order to establish the
kingdom of God here on earth.
In submission to God's will, Couples for
Christ commits itself to this mission. Couples for Christ
will serve wherever God brings it to serve, trusting only
in His guidance and His power.
