AFM Fellow-Colleague,


The Minister of Health, Dr Z. Mkhize said that South Africa has entered the second wave of Covid-19 infections. He also mentioned that the age infections are showing a different pattern from the norm. The age group 15-19 years showed the highest number of infections over the past few days.

Many people that I come across are without masks. We need to encourage our brothers and sisters to comply with the hygienic safety measures – more so as we are approaching Christmas and the New Year holidays. Let us avoid events and gatherings where attendees are non-compliant with the coronavirus safety measures.

The AFM Church must play an active role in bringing down the infection rate. I am calling upon all AFM pastors to ensure that we regularly communicate the following messages to all:

  • Wear a mask when going out.
  • Keep physical distance.
  • No handshakes or hugs.
  • Wash hands thoroughly with soap & water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Do not touch your face with unwashed hands.

We have come to the end of a very challenging 2020. For a short period, we even had to work from home in an effort to still provide our normal services to the members and structures of the church. Your co-operation and understanding in dealing with the National Office are highly appreciated. We will always strive to give our best service to you. Now it is time to take a well-earned rest.

I want to wish all our members, leaders and officials of the Church a safe, merry and wonderful Christmas and may God richly bless you with a prosperous 2021.

The National Office will close on Friday, 11 December 2020 and re-open on 5 January 2021.

In case of emergency please contact:
