Churches of Scientology in Africa

New Scientology churches are on the horizon for Durban, Cape Town, Pretoria, Port Elizabeth and Johannesburg in South Africa and Bulawayo and Harare in Zimbabwe — part of an international Scientology strategy to increase service to Scientologists and the community.

Artists’ renderings of these new churches give an idea of the size and quality of the buildings.

In addition to the many services the churches will provide for Scientologists, they well also offer courses and spiritual counseling for people new to Scientology and for non-Scientologists. An example of the services these churches will be expanding is the Scientology Volunteer Ministers program. South African Scientology churches already man two
Scientology Volunteer Ministers Goodwill Tours, one currently in Ghana and the other in Zambia. These tours offer courses, workshops and seminars based on the Scientology Handbook, which give people practical, effective tools for better living. And the new churches will make it possible to greatly expand the Scientology Volunteer Ministers program throughout southern Africa.

In the 1960s, L. Ron Hubbard lived and worked for many months in South Africa and Zimbabwe, then known as Rhodesia. He carried on his research and worked to accomplish social reforms for the people of these two countries. His respect and love for the countries and their people led him to write, “from Southern Africa will spring the next great civilization on this planet.” And the staff and members of the Scientology churches of South Africa and Zimbabwe are determined to make this come true.
