…we preach Christ crucified – 1 Corinthians 1 : 23


Originally gathering as a small Bible Study Group of believers in 1995 at the home of Mark & Gina Powell, the Robertson Reformed Community Church constituted 11 years later on 15 October 2006 under the leadership of its first Pastor, Sybrand de Swardt.

Since 2010, this family Church, led by Pastor Mark Lillie with support of his family, has become a vibrant example of a body that expounds and shares the Gospel directly from the Holy Scriptures. The Church has a formal constitution, is a member of the Sola 5 association is led by the shepherd and three deacons.

Besides preaching of the word, church activities include prayer meetings, bible studies, Youth gatherings, as well as Men’s and family outings. – ALL ARE WELCOME TO JOIN US.

Mark & Catherine Lillie

By the grace of God, Mark was saved in July 1997 at the age of 31; and his wife Catherine several months later.

In 2001 God called him to study at the Bible Institute of South Africa (in Kalk Bay).

In 2010 he accepted a call to Robertson Reformed Community Church where he with his family are now serving. Mark and Catherine have 4 children – Tegan, Tyra, Troy and Timothy.

Mark & Gina Powel

Raised in a God fearing home by God fearing parents I (Mark Powell) was saved by the grace of my heavenly Father at a young age.

Gina my wife was saved by this same grace at a Sunday School Camp also at a young age.

After been at Goodwood Baptist Church for 18 yrs we moved to Robertson with our two children Aaron and Hannah , where we were blessed by our God and Father to be a part of the “founding members” of the RRCC.

We continue to praise our God through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ and rely completely on the Holy Spirit to continue His work in our lives here at RRCC.

Morné & Louise Marais

We are extremely grateful for God’s grace and Sovereignty within our lives. He has led us and drawn us to learn and grow from His Word & Truth and we are so humbled by His calling to salvation.

God has blessed us with two beautiful girls and we feel privileged to raise them with Christian values and in biblical truth.

It is a joy to serve within the church community at RRCC

Willem & Marita Venter

Willem and Marita both grew up in Christian homes and were saved by God’s grace at a young age. After some time spent in KZN, Northern Cape and abroad God brought them to Robertson in 2017 where they both work as medical professionals.

Together with their two daughters, God has given them a spiritual family and a community to serve at RRCC.
