Brunstad Christian Church IN Africa
Spread across Africa there are many different churches, fellowships, groups and individuals (see map), who share the same faith as Brunstad Christian Church in Norway, which originated in 1898. We come from different backgrounds, educations and walks of life, but wish to gather around our common Christian faith. We are proud to be part of this community, “Brunstad Christian Church in Africa”, which this website gives a little insight into.
Outside of conferences, most activities occur in the local fellowships. Among other things, the fellowships have a range of dynamic activities consisting of the following:
- Gatherings every Sunday
- Youth meetings
- Sunday school for children
- Activity clubs for children
- Various interest groups for young people
The majority of these activities, including faith inspiration and religious education, are made possible by volunteer work or donations.
About this Website
This website aims to inform about Brunstad Christian Church in Africa, its members, activities and missionary programs.
The website is maintained by BCC South Africa (a South African registered Non-Profit Organisation 232-778 NPO). BCC South Africa is involved in several missionary programs in Africa (see the missionary work page).
On this website the name Brunstad Christian Church with a location directly after it (e.g. Brunstad Christian Church South Africa, or Brunstad Christian Church Congo DRC) refers to the registered legal entity. The name may also be abbreviated as BCC with a location name (e.g. BCC South Africa or BCC Congo DRC).
Where Brunstad Christian Church (or BCC) is used without a location directly after it, it refers to the global community of churches, fellowships, groups and individuals who share the same faith as the founding church in Norway. When referring to a church, fellowship or group in a given location, whether registered as a legal entity or not, the term Brunstad Christian Church in location is used (e.g. Brunstad Christian Church in Cameroon). Also note that churches, fellowships and groups may be having a legally registered name which does not contain the phrase “Brunstad Christian Church”, in which case this website will refer to the church, fellowship or group as Brunstad Christian Church in location.
