Welcome to Ysterplaat Community Centre

Ysterplaat is more than just a congregation in a small suburb of Cape Town – we are at the heart of a community that uplifts and cares for one another. We have a genuine passion for people and although we do community work, we prefer to call it what it really is: loving one another.

“And I think that's what our world is desperately in need of - lovers, people who are building deep, genuine relationships with fellow strugglers along the way, and who actually know the faces of the people behind the issues they are concerned about.”


- Shane Claiborne
