SHERR, is the Jesus House ministry for married couples who desire children, but are facing challenges in the area of conception and / or childbearing.  

SHERR’ is an acronym formed from the initial letters of the names of five women in the bible - Sarah, Hannah, Elizabeth, Rebekah and Rachel - who had one thing in common; they all believed God for children.  Through travails, waiting, believing and holding on to the promise from God, they eventually received their children from the Lord. These women are role models for us in this regard.   


We believe in fruitfulness and hold on to the promise of God that “none shall be barren.” (Exodus 23.26)  Our prayer is for a manifestation of this promise in the lives of all who have this desire.  


To provide spiritual and emotional support during the waiting period; to seek the manifestation of the promise of fruitfulness in our lives through prayer, the application of the word of God and other relevant tools and resources.  

The role of SHERR is therefore:

To encourage couples to seek the Lord's guidance regarding their own unique situations
To provide relevant information - spiritual, emotional, medical etc
To be a "safe place" where couples can "exhale" and receive the grace and strength to keep holding on.
To facilitate the building of relationships and friendships
To encourage couples to live life fully during the waiting period



 Monthly meetings -We meet once a month for prayer, group study, for fellowship and to share information as required.

Special events - with invited guest ministers e.g. night vigils, weekend retreats, Testimony evenings, anointing services etc.

Seminars e.g. Medical Seminars
