Ratio Christi

Ratio Christi (Latin for ‘The Reason of Christ’) is an apologetics ministry who are serious about discussing the pressing questions of worldview, science, history, culture and philosophy. In short, Ratio Christi wants to discuss the big questions of life and make sure that along all the other voices, the intellectual voice of Christianity are also heard. Ratio Christi also provides a safe and charitable venue for atheists, agnostics, skeptics, and adherents to any religion to investigate the claims of Christianity, discuss religious beliefs, and seek truth without fearing reprisal. While this is a distinctly Christian organization, anybody is able to become a member and learn, debate, and explore the connection of faith and reason.

AntWoord is a truly South African apologetics ministry. Our focus is to

  1. help equip Christians to be able to give an account for what and why they believe as a strengthening of their faith,
  2. demonstrate to sceptics that the Christian faith is not a blind leap in the dark and thus countering this groundless charge, and,
  3. invite seekers to explore the claims of Christianity for the sake of intellectual integrity.

AntWoord strives to uphold this focus in an authentic and relational context. Nobody comes to faith merely through an argument. We do believe, however, that when people experience love and caring, and when people’s questions and concerns are taken seriously, then that it is where we often find the Holy Spirit at work to penetrate people’s hearts and to bring growth and New Life.


TGIF is an informal Friday-morning coffee-shop meeting with a topical and challenging talk followed by a time for questions and discussion – all over a cup of good coffee. TGIF covers a wide range of topics including worldviews, ethics, leadership, popular culture and contemporary issues. In this, TGIF generally explores the truth & goodness of Biblical Christianity and its relevance to all of life and reality. Although its origins are Christian, TGIF very much aims to be of benefit to people of all (or no) convictions. Everyone is welcome, entrance is free, and no prior booking is required.

Wie het God Gemaak?

Hierdie webblad is begin deur André en Marianne van Zyl. Ons albei is mense wat nogal nuuskierig is en graag vrae vra oor God, geloof en die lewe in die algemeen. Ons glo dat mens maar enige vraag mag vra en dat mens maar oor enigiets mag wonder en gesels. Soos wat ons self al oor baie dinge gewonder en gelees het het ons ontdek dat Bybelse Christenskap regtig waar is, en dat dit ook die beste manier is om sin te maak van die wêreld om ons. Dikwels loop mense rond met ‘n vraag in hulle kop waarop daar eintlik fantastiese antwoorde vanuit die Christelike geloof is, as hulle dit net wil vra! Hierdie webblad is bedoel om ‘n plek te wees waar jong (wat jy ookal dink is jonk!) Afrikaanse mense hulle vrae kan vrae. Ons sal probeer om vir jou ‘n deurdagte, eerlike en Bybelse opinie te gee oor enigiets waaroor jy wil gesels.
