Our Sunday Services via Zoom, at 10:00am are going well and will continue, in keeping with the current situation.. We remind all that the services are recorded, thanks to Alex van Zyl, and are available to view on ACT’s Facebook page.

The zoom services have given us the benefit of reaching beyond the city boundaries and we have enjoyed having folk participate from East London, Cape Town, and even the U.K.

We will send the ZOOM link (a new one for each Sunday) to anyone who wishes to join the service.

You are invited to partake in an exciting voyage of self-discovery. As an extension campus for the Divine Science School in Washington DC, we teach metaphysical Christianity which offers individuals the opportunity to arrive at a clear understanding of the universal laws that affect our daily lives.

This class offers a ten-week course of instruction in the meaning of certain terminology, basic assumptions, and universal spiritual principles and is the foundation on which we build our understanding of this new view of Life, God and ourselves.

This class is a pre-requisite for all other Divine Science Classes.

Time: On-site class from 10:00 to 12:00; Zoom class from 18:00 to 20:00
*Notices will be sent out with new anticipated starting date for this class.

A metaphysical study into understanding the Mysticism of  God in all things, and the spiritual psychology of  these stories.

The Old Testament reveals the growth in awareness of each of us, from duality and rearranging effects, to the awakening of the Christ Self.

Join Mallory on a ten-week adventure as we unpack the hidden meanings through allegories, parables, and symbolic language.

As we progress, we discover the Bible as the story of each individual’s unfoldment through awakening in consciousness to the Divinity of their own being.

On-site class from 10:00 to 12:00;  Zoom class from 18:00 to 20:00
*Notices will be sent out with new anticipated starting date for this class.

For more information: Contact Rev Mallory Kretzmann on 083-218-7332



It has been decided that both these classes will be offered on a donation basis.

This has come about through realizing the value of this teaching of Divine Science and the important Principles (Philosophy if you like) of how to live and thrive in all aspects of Life. So this is our “gift” to the community—our service to Truth.

We look forward to having you join us as together we participate in a Teaching, offered as a way, with our intentional participation in the upliftment of Consciousness.

“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.”
John 12:32
