We believe God is calling us as Common Ground Church (formerly known as Friends First Church) to become the kind of church that reflects some of his heart to a God-starved world. We have a long way to go, but with the extraordinary grace of God, we refuse to give up on becoming all God wants us to become, and doing all God wants us to do - no matter how long it takes, and no matter the cost.
We believe that authentic relationships should come before everything else… authentic relationships between one another, and an authentic relationship between each one of us and our heavenly Father.
With our aim to get back to God’s original New Testament pattern for church, we are passionate about releasing every believer to fulfill God’s purpose in their lives and for their generation. Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Common Ground Church is led by a team of leaders, who are led by Rigby and Sue Wallace.
