Goodwood (B16)

Name: Goodwood

Historic fact:

AFM Goodwood (Goodwood AGS) is part of the AFM family of South Africa, which was started soon after the American business man/evangelist set foot in Cape Town in 1908. In 1919 evangelist Scott Moffat was asked by the Goodwood Presbyterian church to hold midweek services in Goodwood. The result was that many people were converted and baptized.

Soon they were filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in tongues and it became evident that an independent AFM assembly was overdue. The first church building was inaugurated on 9 May 1922 in Voortrekker Road, Goodwood, which today houses Standard bank.
