Neil Vels is the minister of Milnerton Methodist Church and also looks after the Brooklyn congregation. He and his wife Lynn got married just before moving to Cape Town from the East Rand to at the end of 2015, and have a young son Alex who lives with cystic fibrosis. Neil is passionate about the local church, reading, gardening and photography, and runs because he has to, not because he wants to! He has an MTh in ecclesiology. The family hope to be part of this community for many years to come.
Dawn Rae is the friendly voice you will hear on the telephone and has been secretary to Milnerton Methodist since 2008. In her free time she enjoys books – both reading and writing – jigsaw puzzles and board games. Dawn belongs to several writing groups and two monthly games groups. She lives with two cats of great character, and her only regret is that her furry companions cannot be persuaded to do housework!
Finance, buildings, and property
We recognise that members of our congregation sacrifice to give to God’s work. We’re grateful for each contribution which we receive through each Sunday’s offering, regular tithes by stop order and direct deposit or EFT. From time to time we also embark on various fundraising initiatives. Our finances are managed in accordance with good business practices and we operate according to a clearly defined annual budget. Audited financial statements are available to interested parties.
While our focus as church is always on mission rather than maintenance, we’re also committed to care for our church campus through looking after the buildings which we have and where necessary upgrading of our facilities to remain relevant and comfortable for our congregation and those who use our premises.
