What We're All About

Jesus, People



Red Harbour Church was planted in August 2013 by Shaq and Claire Muetheno. Shaq was an elder at Cornerstone Church Johannesburg for several years before God put the city of Cape Town on his and Claire’s hearts.

Claire and Shaq met in 2002, fell in love and got married in 2004. They were first stirred to plant a church in 2006 but weren’t exactly sure what to do about it. They went on a church planters course which was a real breakthrough in confirming that this is what God wanted them to do. At the time they wanted to plant a church in a suburb in Johannesburg but after chatting to friends and leaders in the ministry it seemed the time wasn’t yet right.

But in 2012 Cape Town began to grow on their heart. Through a series of events, they and the leaders at Cornerstone became convinced that it was now the time.

“Everyone has a story and a voice,” says Shaq. “We want to go out there and tell the story of Jesus.”

And that, indeed, is what Red Harbour Church is all about.  A perfect place for imperfect people.


God is creator of the universe and the author of life. God is spirit, and therefore, is timeless. Sovereignly possessing all power and all knowledge, He never tires, gains strength, or acquires new knowledge. He is all-present in the universe. God never changes.


Jesus, the eternal Son of God, exists uncreated and is equal in deity with the Father and the Holy Spirit. The promised and prophesied Messiah is the Word that became flesh and made His dwelling among us.

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit, third person of the Trinity, co-equal in deity with God the Father and God the Son, is the promised Comforter, the Helper, the Spirit of Christ, who lives in those who follow Jesus.


Know Jesus Christ and Make Him Known


“Red Harbour” stands for Redemption Harbour. Like a harbour, we want to see many people from all walks of life coming in, being connected to a healthy church family, being restored, being equipped and then sent out to bring the Gospel to all people everywhere in the world.
