Ad Lucem blue

Ad Lucem” could be described as “walking towards the Light” in Latin.44197_151340768235444_3577905_n (1)

This initiative started as a result of the growing need we have recognised in our community which led us to host a series of Dialogues and Debates as a church in October 2013. This included world renown Apologists on various topics facing the church stretching from Islam to Jehovah’s Witnesses etc. As a result, we were overwhelmed the response from communities throughout South Africa and beyond asking questions pertaining to belief and culture. Ad Lucem endeavours to discuss various topics in all environments and communities looking for a Biblical outcome to all these questions through various platforms. This site includes posts from international apologists and speakers with their written consent and includes their details at the end of their posts.

cotnAs a Church, we are affiliated with C.O.T.N. Makarios Cluster. The word “affiliation” means “relationship”. We believe that in order to be effective as a
church family, we need to partner with other ministries and churches. Tessera submits to the leadership and international covering of Church of the Nations (COTN)
