Who We Are

About Our Church

El Shaddai is a Hebrew name for God, which can be translated as “God Almighty” or “the all-sufficient God”. It expresses an important part of our understanding of the God we worship and whose Kingdom purposes we’re committed to.

Our journey together as a “local church” started in November 1993.  We’re in Durbanville – a suburb in the northern reaches of the city of Cape Town.


Fridays 7pm (Youth Service)
Sundays: 9am 


Lord’s Walk, off Langeberg Road,

Where should I park?

Come down Lord’s Walk and turn left at the Streams entrance. Park at the main entrance. We also have overflow parking just past the Streams entrance – on the right hand side.
