YWAM Muizenberg

Responds to COVID-19

13 Januari 2020

We live in unprecedented times and we, as YWAM Muizenberg, continue to pray for wisdom, guidance and peace on how we as a community can responsibly proceed with life and ministry in a rapidly changing COVID-19 environment. While we want to be obedient to what God has called us to do, protecting our staff, staff families, students, volunteers and the wider Muizenberg community remains our priority. We will continue to explore Training initiatives that comply with government regulations. To this effect, we will employ strict measures on our campus.


The current adjusted lockdown level 3 regulations do not permit anyone going to the beach, rivers or dams. No faith-based gatherings are permitted except. Funerals attendance is limited to 50 people only. Restaurants are allowed to operate but with strict observance to protocol. Anyone who wilfully violates the Covid regulations is liable to a fine or imprisonment of up to six months or both. These regulations are in place until mid-February 2021.  


YWAM Muizenberg’s Covid-19 Response Team continues to diligently work in helping us comply with government protocols and keeping our community safe. We join the global community in celebrating the availability of the vaccine. The South African government is frantically working to make the vaccine available in the country in the next few months. While the vaccine is here, we recognize that to defeat or slow down the virus, we need to combine the vaccine and the protocols of hand washing, wearing masks, sanitizing, social distancing and where necessary isolating ourselves. It is adhering to these simple measures that will have the greatest impact in defeating this pandemic. We will continue to enforce these during the course of our Training.


We as YWAM Muizenberg encourage everyone to support one another as best as they can through social media platforms etc. We continue to explore innovative ways to ensure that our community feels supported emotionally, physically and spiritually and have set up online resources to that effect. Our Community and Mental Health team continues to avail themselves as a way to support our staff community.

But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed, perplexed, but not driven to despair, persecuted, but not forsaken, struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies (2 Corinthians 4:7-10)
