kalk bay community church

Kalk Bay Community Church (KBCC), 180 Main Road, Kalk Bay

KBCC is an evangelical non-denominational church. The beautiful church building was built in 1923 and is on the premises of The Bible Institute of South Africa, 180 Main Road Kalk Bay. However, our fellowship in Christ is more important than a building. The Kalk Bay Community Church has a special relationship with the Bible Institute and is thankful for counsel and help in the past. BI students form part of our community of believers and take an active part in the life of the church. KBCC aims to provide a place of fellowship and worship for believers living in and around Kalk Bay, but also to be a missional church where every member is involved to live and tell the good news of Jesus to those around us and to the ends of the earth.

Services:

Sunday Service: Starts at 0930hrs

Bible Study: Wednesday Evenings from 1830hrs – at the Church

The Unsaid
by Richard De Nooy 

Newshound J.R. Deo has spent his life pursuing tragedy to the darkest corners of the globe, reporting on places like the Killing fields and the Middle East. He has not emerged unscathed from this quest: he has a history of violent outbursts, and following a savage attack on fellow journalists in a bar, Deo’s mental state and criminal accountability for the attack are assessed at the Institute for forensic observation in the Netherlands. Here, he goes from observer to observed. The calm in his cell is initially ideal for taking stock of horrors past and present.

But gradually, sinister figures take control of his pen and begin dictating their confessions through his writing. Meanwhile, his fellow inmates at the Institute also become increasingly restless. The violent, paranoid men he is among begin to wonder what exactly Deo is reporting on, and more importantly, to whom.

When: Monday 12th May

How to Fix South Africa’s Schools
By Prof Jonathan Jansen and Molly Blank
South Africa has an education crisis, despite the fact that the government spends the biggest slice of its budget on education, more than any other African country. And yet the crisis persists.
Jansen and Blank looked at South African schools that work, in spite of adverse conditions – schools in poor communities, schools with overcrowded classrooms, schools in both rural and urban environments – and have drawn out the practical strategies that make them successful. There are no complicated theories, no difficult to implement solutions – just lots of common sense.
Molly Blank is a documentary filmmaker who began working in South Africa as a Fulbright Scholar in 2005. Previously she was a teacher in Washington, DC. She holds an MA in Journalism from the University of California, Berkeley and a BA in History from Tufts University.
Professor Jonathan Jansen is the rector of the University of the Free State, where he has earned a formidable reputation for transformation and for a deep commitment to reconciliation. A former Dean of Education at the University of Pretoria, Prof Jansen holds an impressive collection of degrees and awards, including the position as President of the South African Institute of Race Relations.
Molly Blank and Prof Jansen will be in conversation with Cameron Dugmore.
Date: Friday 25th April
Time: 6.00 for 6.30pm
Place: Kalk Bay Books, 124 Main Road, Kalk Bay

     Depth Leadership
           by Helene Smit

Helene’s previous book, Beneath – Exploring the Unconscious in Individuals, introduced the subject of depth psychology and provided some insight as to why we do the things we do, and how we can change ourselves.
Her new book, Depth Leadership, is aimed at those who lead groups, whether formal organisational groups or informal social groups, and offers help to anyone from CEOs to teachers to nurses to municipal managers to parents. Depth Leadership is a reworking of her 2009 book, The Depth Facilitator’s Handbook, and brings to fruition a process that started twenty-five years ago. “I am pleased to now be able to say that I have a method,” she says. Depth Leadership is beautifully illustrated by Kalk Bay artist Katherine Glenday.

letter from chand / rehabilitation of main road

REHABILITATION OF MAIN ROAD PHASE 2

Dear Interested and Affected Party

Please be advised that there will be temporary stop/ go and temporary deviation sections on the Main Road between Dalebrook and Clairvaux Roads starting on Monday 3 February.

As you were advised towards the end of last year, the new 700mm diameter water main is required to pass a test whereby it is pumped up to a pressure of 18 bar and holds this pressure for a minimum of one hour without leaks.  Although coming very close to passing, it was unfortunately not possible to meet the test requirement due to what is suspected to be a relatively minor leak.  It will therefore be necessary to re-open each hole to identify and rectify the fault.

It is planned to open up one hole a day excluding Fridays and it is hoped to complete this operation, including re-surfacing all the patched areas, by 21 February. 

This will be followed by the cross-over from the old water main to the new in the last week of February where a stop/go will be required for one or two days at the main valve chamber opposite the Bible Institute.

The final operation will be to convert part of the old water main between Clairvaux Road and the harbour entrance into a storm water pipe.  This will involve working in three manholes which have been constructed over the old water main.  This work will be done in the first week of March.

To minimise disruption to traffic, every effort will be made to keep the half-width sections as short as possible.  The work will be done between the hours of 07:00 and 16:00.

 The project team once again apologises for any inconvenience caused.

 

a rumour of spring

Zebra Press and Kalk Bay Books invite you to the launch of

   A Rumour of Spring
     by Max du Preez
In A Rumour of Spring, Max Du Preez looks at the legacies of Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki, and examines Jacob Zuma’s presidency. In the context of corruption, populism and tragedies such as Marikana, the book considers the current state of the ruling party and the opposition. It dissects issues currently afflicting our society, including the state of education, land reform, crime and policing, the judiciary, nationality and race. And then, with images of the Arab Spring fresh in our collective memory, it dares to look to the future and what it may hold.
An honest and balanced account, A Rumour of Spring tackles the questions asked by ordinary South Africans every day: How are we really doing? What is really going on in our country? How should we understand what is happening here? And will it get any better?
Max will be in conversation with John Maytham
