Community Groups

Gracepoint is not a church WITH small groups, but rather, a church OF small groups in which people are encouraged to connect in authentic community and belong. In groups we can find encouragement, support, fellowship and connection.

Get support as a new member


A baptism is a holy moment at which we come to confess our faith in Christ and symbolically enter into His death and resurrection. For more information about arranging a baptism, please contact:


We encourage individuals struggling through difficult times to take the first step of faith and meet with a member of our counselling team. Only God can meet you where you are and provide the healing and restoration you are in need of. For more information see our counselling page further…

Prayer and home visits

We believe gracepoint owes all its success to God as well as the community he has blessed us with. To this end we offer the community additional support in the form of any special prayer requests as well as conducting home visits for those in need.

What our community says

  • This was my first time at Gracepoint, I loved the songs, the atmosphere, the baptism service was gorgeous, and the main service Jesus Encounter was awesome. It was such a beautiful experience for me to see Bishop Gary Rivas doing the service. I know Gary from the Germiston Methodist days, I felt very proud to see how he has been blessed in the ministry.

  • Gary Rivas, the church head is a man who can talk the talk and walk the walk. An excellent communicator and a true man of GOD. His sermons are captivating to say the least, a wonderful congregation and a place I call 'home' each Sunday as I humble myself and worship The Almighty GOD.

  • We had the most amazing experience. Bishop Gary delivered a sermon from his heart, which resonated throughout the congregation. As visitors from the US, there couldn't have been a more timely message of love, forgiveness, acceptance and tolerance. We were also blessed to be able to attend the evening praise worship. WOW!!!
