Our History

Sivuyile National Baptist Church of Southern Africa was founded by Reverend Vuyani Victor Mtini in 1997 after he split with few congregants from J.Z. Ndaliso Memorial Baptist Mission .

The dream the vision:
The dream of the Sivuyile United National Baptist Church of Southern Africa was to have a place they can call their own which was realized in 2007 after ten (10) years of worshiping and using Sivuyile Campus classroom of the College of Cape Town for the spiritual services.

During a sod turning ceremony Reverend Mtini announced that the church will be open to the community for funerals and weddings and it will be a place of meetings pertaining issues relevant to the community.

Sivuyile National Baptist Church was built by prisoners who were out of on parole free of charge as part of their rehabilitation to the society.

Mzikayise John Stevens, the head of Community Correction in Mitchells Plain said about the prisoners who were involved in the project : “ The community must give them the second chance in life".

Today Sivuyile stands at a strong 800 members and growing.
