Godfirst and Advance

Godfirst East Rand began as a site of Godfirst – a Church planted in Bryanston by PJ and Ashleigh Smyth in 2005. Starting out as a life group of about 12 Godfirsters driving across to Bryanston for Sunday services, G1 East Rand was finally launched as a G1 site. Godfirst has transitioned from one Church in many locations to a brotherhood of Churches working together under the banner of Advance.


By name and by nature

We wanted a name that would provoke believers to energetic devotion to God, whilst giving everyone a snapshot of what it means to be a Christ-follower - Godfirst. Oswald Smith writes:

"Does God come first in my life or does business hold the supreme place? Is it God first or pleasure? God first or money? God first or family? Do they come first or does God? What then are the terms of discipleship? Let me give the answer in just two words: God first. And if I could, I would put them on a banner in the sight of every congregation in the world - GOD FIRST."
