Ash Wednesday Service

 

This past Wednesday was Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent, which is the 40 days of preparation leading up to Easter. The three pillars of lent are fasting, prayer and giving.

 

Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.

We are invited to give up something to help us focus on God and perhaps take up something to help us get closer to God (Praying more, reading the Bible more intentionally, reading a spiritual book, increasing our giving etc)

On Wednesday morning the College received ashes on their foreheads with these words: "Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return".

We received them inviting us to turn away from things that lead us away from God and others, and reminding us of our mortality. Looking at death invites us to live with more passion and joy, treasuring every person and each moment!

Consider giving something up (stopping something) and/or taking something up (starting something) in order to help you focus on God this Lent.  May we prepare our hearts to once again hear the wonderful story of Easter.

New College Chaplain Announcement

5th October 2015


Rev Tim Marshall - January 2016

Following a lengthy process involving both Kingswood and 
the Methodist Church of Southern Africa, it is with considerable pleasure that the College announces the appointment of Reverend Timothy Marshall as the new College Chaplain. Rev Marshall will take over from Rev “Dix” Sibeko during the course of the December summer holiday. Rev Marshall (Tim) attended school in Bloemfontein (St Andrew’s), after which he completed a Bachelor of Commerce degree at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. He went on further to gain a Diploma in Theology at the Theological Education by Extension College (TEEC) in 2003. 
 

Currently, at the Walmer Methodist Church, Tim is the Youth Director and an Associate Minister. In his eight years at Walmer he has overseen all areas of Youth Ministry. Tim brings with him a wealth of experience in ministering to young people having also served, for ten years, as a Youth Pastor at St John’s Methodist Church. In addition to his extensive Youth Ministry work, Tim has also worked in the media field particularly radio. His considerable experience in working with young people in Port Elizabeth will give Tim an ideal platform on which to build his ministry at Kingswood, and we greatly look forward to him joining the College staff.  Tim is married to Terri and they have two young children Luke (5) and Caryn (3). When not involved in church activities, Tim continues to do voice over work for radio as well as use his recognised public speaking skills at functions across the province. Tim has a strong interest in Toastmasters and has been recognised for his abilities in this field, by a number of organisations.

 

2014 Staff Induction

New staff at Kingswood inducted in special chapel service

New staff at Kingswood for 2014 were welcomed at a special service in the College Chapel on Sunday evening where they were inducted by Bishop Losaba, presiding bishop of the Methodist Church of South Africa. In a moving sermon, Bishop Losaba urged the new staff to follow the example of the little known disciple Andrew, who is credited with finding the little boy with five loaves and two fishes and thus precipitating the miracle on the mount.  He asked the new staff to be "as Andrew was, to persuade the little boy to share and make great things happen".  With a sprinkle of humour to engage the younger pupils attending the service, it was a inspirational evening which also saw new Senior School Head, Mr Paul Guthrie installed in his new position in a special ceremony. 

 

Kingswood announces new Chaplain for 2012

26th May 2011

Kingswood College announced the name this week of its new incoming College Chaplain for 2012.  Reverend Madika “Dix” Sibeko will join the College to succeed Rev Tim Rist who is moving to the Salem Circuit as Superintendent Minister responsible for the Methodist congregations at Kenton-on-Sea, Alexandria, Salem, Nanaga, Sidbury and Seven Fountains.  Rev Rist has been Chaplain at Kingswood for 8 years.  Rev Sibeko has had previous experience in the role of school chaplain at fellow Methodist school, St Stithian’s, where she was based for five years before working for the Methodist Church of Southern Africa at the John Wesley College in Pretoria for three years.  This teaching experience led her in 2008 to spend a year teaching at Cambridge University in mission and ministry courses, before returning as chaplain to the Marsh Memorial Homes in Cape Town where she is currently based.   Besides her wide-ranging teaching experience, Rev Sibeko has worked extensively with youth groups and in counselling, pastoral care and ministry.
