About Us


The first service of MRPC was held in the local Swiss Country Club in March 1985 with 12 people attending. By September 1985 the congregation began to worship in St Saviour's with 40 people attending the first service there. The congregation has grown steadily over the 30 years and now we have about 340 families (800 - 900 individuals) worshipping and participating in God's work amongst us.

The founder minister of the congregation was Tim Sawyer who with his wife Julie emigrated to South Africa from England in 1970. Tim retired in September 2005 and was involved in the formation of the new Presbyterian Church in the Fourways area. Sadly Tim went to be with his maker in 2007.

Christopher Judelsohn, appointed as successor to Tim in April 2004, is originally from Cape Town having first served in Port Elizabeth at St Martin's Presbyterian Church. His wife, Keryn, was born in Durban, but also grew up in Cape Town. Chris & Keryn have two lovely daughters, Rachael and Emma, and a son Nathan.
