CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY
It is with great pride we welcome you to our Church.
Since 1981, we have served a growing congregation in Johannesburg North. Johannesburg holds an exceptional place in Scientology history. For it was in Johannesburg that the Founder of our religion, L. Ron Hubbard, made his home in the early 1960s and worked to bring the spiritual freedom of Scientology to our nation. Above all, it was here he sought to revitalise the indomitable African spirit—a spirit which, once sparked, could burn forth throughout the world and thus realise his prediction and his dream: “From Southern Africa will spring the next great civilisation on this planet.”
Our Church realises Mr. Hubbard’s vision that all Churches of Scientology become what he termed Ideal Organisations (Orgs). Ideal Orgs not only provide the ideal facilities to service Scientologists on their ascent to higher states of spiritual freedom, but they also serve as a home for the entire community and a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift people of all denominations.
To that end, we share our Church and our many social betterment and humanitarian programmes with this region.
We look forward to working with every group and individual dedicated to uplifting society in the same spirit in which this area has become a thriving centre for our rainbow nation.
Together, we can achieve our common dream of a civilisation without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where Man is free to rise to greater heights.
L. RON HUBBARD’S
Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard’s original home in Johannesburg stands as a fully restored landmark high on Linksfield Ridge.
In 1960 Mr. Hubbard travelled from his residence in southern England for an extended stay in this city, to assist and support a growing Scientology movement in South Africa. It was here he developed introductory services of the religion, with the Johannesburg Church swiftly becoming the fastest growing Scientology Church in the world.
