About Paulus Daniel Luckhoff

RHENISH MISSIONARY CHURCH (1823) Initially a rectangular hall, it was erected on a piece of ground earmarked for a racing clubhouse. The hall served to accommodate the crowds of "slaves and heathen" who came to listen to the enthusiastic Amsterdam missionary (and later Voortrekker parson) Erasmus Smit. After the founding in Germany of the Rhenish Missionary Society in 1828, the Rev. Paul Daniel Lückhoff assumed his duties in 1830. The emancipation of slaves in 1838 caused the congregation to grow to the extent that a northern wing was added in 1840. A magnificent baroque pulpit from the Stellenbosch Dutch Reformed Church, carved by Simon Londt of Cape Town in 1853, was ten years later donated to this daughter congregation when the "Mother Church’ was "gothicised". Today both the building and the pulpit are declared national monuments.
