Who We Are


The word ‘Bizweni’ comes from the Zulu word ‘mbizo’, which means ‘the king calls’. ‘Bizweni’ therefore means, “called to a place of meeting by the King” or more simply put, ‘Place of Meeting’.


  • We believe in One God eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and believe the message of good news to be relevant to all people across the world.
  • We believe that God sent us His only Son, Jesus, to redeem us from sin and to give us eternal life through repentance and faith in Him.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the head of the Church, which is built on the Apostles teaching, on fellowship, the breaking of bread, and prayer (Acts 2:42).
  • We believe that throughout our lives we are called demonstrate a message of hope to the world. To be a joyful community committed to neighbourliness and communion with God.
An Adventure in Faith


Kobus Swart


Kobus’ first exposure to the apostolic ministry and the gospel of the Kingdom happened in 1973, while he was still a Mathematics & Physics lecturer. A new season started in his life as he entered into full-time ministry. In the early 90’s he acquired a Master’s degree in Theology from UWC, during which time he was exposed to aspects of the “struggle” in South Africa’s transition into a new democratic dispensation. It was during this time that he planted the church now known as Bizweni Church in Somerset West
