Our History


In 1922 the Hatfield Methodist Church, a wood and iron shell, was established and would later evolve into the now Willows Methodist Church.

In the 1980s Pretoria began expanding, specifically eastwards.

In the 1990s the wake of the new democratic South Africa, the city’s transformation intensified.

In 1992 Rev. Dudley Goodenough was appointed Minister and he began sharing his dream of relocating the church in the east of Pretoria, out along the N4 highway.

Our Beliefs


The People Called Methodists

The ‘people called Methodists’ form a family of churches within the World Methodist Council.

  • We claim and cherish our true place in the one holy, catholic and apostolic church.
  • Our origins lie in the work of John and Charles Wesley in 18th century England which quickly spread to every corner of the world.
  • The purpose of this work and ministry was, and is, to renew the Church and spread scriptural holiness, which includes social righteousness throughout the whole earth, to the glory of the one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We confess that often we have failed to live up to this high calling, and we repent of the times when our witness has distorted the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Trusting in the grace of God, we engage ourselves anew in God's service.
