Welcome to edge church
No matter who you are and what you believe, you’re welcome to explore this website to find out what we believe and who we are, and then why not visit us at one of our Sunday services? We trust that both online and in person, you’ll discover that we’re ordinary people following Jesus together, loving and serving others. We’re relevant, multi-generational, and welcoming and accepting of all people – all because of an extraordinary God.
Edge Church started with a few families coming together in 1975, with a vision to influence their community. Eight years later, they gave sacrificially to the opening of their first building! Shortly after, the leadership took a bold step. They took up God’s call to reach beyond themselves by sending a young couple, Pedro and Barbie Erasmus, into the mission field in North-East Namibia. It was a great step of faith and sacrifice. In 1993, Pedro and Barbie, and their now 3 children, were called back to South Africa to serve as ministers at what was then, Edgemead Assembly of God. The church saw growth and God continued to challenge the leadership about expanding. The motivation was wrapped up in Isaiah 54: Love for God, sacrifice for others to come to know Him and obedience to the steps of faith he called us at Edge Church to take.
“Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense! For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.” Isaiah 54:2-3
Edge Church is a story of faithfulness. Right from the beginning, Edge Church existed for people to have a relationship with God and express his love to others and impact the next generation. As time went on, we became more intentional about growing in our love for God and others.
In September 2020, we saw a transition of leadership, as Daniel Erasmus was inducted and ordained as the Lead Pastor for our Edgemead Congregation.
Love God. Love People.
EDGE CHURCH – A PLACE WHERE YOU BELONG. WE'RE A GOD-FIRST, FUN-FILLED FAMILY WHO LOVES WELL.

Elevate is the Youth Ministry of Edge Church. As Elevate, we are passionate about creating a safe space for high schoolers (Grades 8 – 12) to find a home away from home. We believe that we are called to journey together with each teenager to grow in their relationship with God, help them discover all He has for them and who He has designed them to be. We consider it our privilege to be a part of empowering and equipping teenagers to be the hands and feet of Jesus in their homes, communities, school and friendship circles.
Elevate happens at 7pm every Friday night of the school term. We have some fun, hangout, worship, dig into God’s word and spend some time in life groups together.
From the beginning of Term 4, Grade 7's transition from EPIC to Elevate, so that they can build relationships with their new leaders before the high school transition.

CURRENT: STUDENTS & YOUNG ADULTS
CURRENT is a movement of young people focused on loving and equipping other young people by bringing them into a safe space of true discipleship and genuine connection. If you’re a student or anywhere between the ages of 18 – 25, we’d love for you to join us. It’s a space to engage and talk about relevant topics, and boldly seek to live out the future that God has for us.
We meet weekly in Life Groups and find this to be the best place to grow in our personal relationships with Jesus, to be actively involved in impacting our communities and reaching out to friends, whilst getting to do life together. There’s no better way to build long-lasting friendships too.
Our hope is that we could come together as young adults and encourage each other in life and in our faith. We believe that God is calling the young adults of our community to come together to be filled and equipped so that this will overflow into other people’s lives.
