West Coast Bishop area welcomed District Apostle N. Barnes to the congregation of Robinvale on Sunday 27 November 2016.

All the Rectors and wives of the working area of Apostle Thompson were invited to this festive divine service.
The service was introduced with the central theme of Advent. The congregation was encouraged to continue waiting for the Lord with patience. The dangers associated with waiting were also explained.
It had been four years since the District Apostle served in Robinvale congregation with the retirements of the Apostle van der Merwe, as well as Bishops Kilian and Isaacs.
After the conclusion of the divine service, the District Apostle spent a few moments with the ministers. As has become accustomed in this time the District Apostle was one of the last to leave the church.
