CHILDREN, CHURCH AND THE LAW: A Practical Guide for Churches on the Children’s Act and Other Laws Relating to Children This practical guide offers an overview of the Children’s Act and how it relates to churches and Children’s institutions and ministries. It enables leaders of churches and child-care institutions in South Africa to better understand and adhere to the Children’s Act and other relevant legislation. Its purpose is to promote the protection and wellbeing of children in all aspects of church and community life. The book outlines general principles of the Act and examines issues around the safety and well-being of children, issues such as rights and responsibilities of both children and carers, and how to confront issues such as child labour, child trafficking and other abuses. It’s a very practical book, written in simple English in a question-and-answer format. Its full colour format allows for easy reference to the different sections. The book includes a glossary of terms used, real life examples of application of the different principles, and snippets that illustrate the principle being described. Format: 200-page A4 full-colour book

A SOUTHERN AFRICAN MULTILINGUAL HYMN COLLECTION
Full music edition @ R100
A collection of new and old hymns for the various seasons of the Church year.
also for Morning and evening Prayer, Baptism, Confirmation, Ordination, Weddings, etc. etc.
from the Editor: “it seemed counterproductive to create something which would supplant existing vernacular and imported hymnals which already formed an integral part of mainstream worship. Instead it seemed best to fill the gaps providing existing hymns by local authors that are perhaps not widely available…..This collection in no way claims to represent the fullness of Southern Africa theological, musical, textual and cultural styles. It simply aims to represent aspects of our diverse reality”. .. AJ Bethke
