Early Morning Fire Destroys Beiseker Level-Land Seventh-day Adventist Church

(December 20, 2023)


This morning, at approximately 6 am, a 911 call was made by an individual going to work who saw that the Beiseker Level-Land Seventh-day Adventist Church was on fire. Emergency and fire crews quickly responded to the call but unfortunately the fire was too much, and the church was completely destroyed.


Thankfully there were no injuries, and the church hall was spared which will become a temporary worship Centre once gas and electricity is restored to the hall.


It's a big loss to the community and many church members are recalling the good memories they have of worshiping and fellowship together at the church building over the years.


A special thank you goes to all the fire and emergency crews who responded to the call.


Our thoughts and prayers are with the congregation at this time.


The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
