Dear Colleague,


By now we hope you know about the myAFM APP that was officially launched on Friday, 1 October 2021. The myAFM APP has a dedicated private section for AFM Pastors. AFM Pastors will enjoy free access to this private section of the APP and the National Office will use it to send regular and relevant communication and notifications. (Please note that a subscription fee of R12 per month will be applied to the public part of the APP.)

I want to encourage all our Pastors to follow the steps to pre-register to gain access to this section of the myAFM APP. The steps are easy to follow and available from:

2. PCD (Pastors’ Continuous Development): UPDATE

We have received some queries regarding PCD points for the upcoming GBM on the 16th and 17th of November 2021. As the GBM is only a meeting and an election this year, excluding training in the form of PCD Workshops, no PCD points will be awarded.

To stay up to date with the PCD process, follow:


The National Calendar was approved at the Durban National Leadership Forum (NLF) and can now be downloaded from the link below:


When things are tough and difficult in my own household, does God still expect me to reach out to others in need? We believe that through God’s grace we should continue to generously give and reach out to others in need – even in challenging times.

This is the proposed theme for the 2021 AFM Welfare Weekend (26-28 November 2021) as celebrated by the Members and Assemblies in The AFM of SA. This year there is a special focus on how the church can make a difference in the lives of older persons in their community. We are excited to see what AFM Members and Assemblies are planning.

For practical guidelines on how to make the most of your AFM Welfare Weekend, remember to consult the Pastoral Letter of the 3rd Quarter:
