WE WAVE GOODBYE to Kevin Eberhardt.

Kevin was House mng to Oneway for 3 years. His dedication & selfless acts of service to the organisation has come to an end as he moves into a new chapter in  his  life  as  a videographer/editor.

ONEWAY is super excited for him. We will miss his fun-loving, enthusiastic character dearly. Our prayers are with him while he works at making his dreams come true.

Christmas is here & WE LOOK FORWARD to the festive season calendar at ONEWAY:

Moonlight cold-water emmersion swims, Art

classes  every  Tues &  Fri leading  up  to Christmas, Pool competions, Basketball, Soccer, Touch Rugby, Kick boxing, Surfing, Wave skiing, Christmas Experience  Production  @  VIEW Church, 2 Carols services one in Camps Bay as a  Church  Picnic,  one  at  ONEWAY  with accoustic guitar led by Chris Shortt-Smith, Hikes(Pipe Track &  the  Cat  Walk),  Games events, Potjie braai’s, Beach Braai’s…and more!


This contributes largely to the healing process of addiction recovery. 

The name comes from a time when the rich used to box up gifts to give to the poor.

Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants – a day when they received a special Christmas box from their masters. The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give Christmas boxes to their families.

The importance of understanding the birth of Jesus:

Jesus: Jesus came as a sacrifice for  so we could escape our

corruption & reconnect with God. Why  is his sacrifice so  important?  The Bible states:

For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)

We are separated from God by our sins like a chasm separating two cliffs.

Religious Merit & Good Effort, useful  as they may be, cannot bridge the separation between us & God.

Jesus is the Bridge that spans the chasm between God & mankind. Notice how this sacrifice of Jesus is given to us. It is offered  as a sacrifice…

Jesus’ sacrifice is a gift that each of us must choose to receive. The Bible says that: Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved (Romans 10:12)


Dear Lord Jesus.  I understand that my sins separated me from God. Though I can try hard, no effort & sacrifice on my part will bridge this separation. But I understand that your death was a sacrifice to wash away all my sins. I believe that you rose from the dead after your sacrifice, so I know that your sacrifice was sufficient. I ask you to please cleanse me from my sins & bridge me to God so I can have eternal life. I do not want to live a life enslaved to sin, please free me from sin. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for doing all this for me & would you even now continue to guide me in my life so I can follow you as my Lord. Amen

Year End Celebrations at Theewaterskloof Dam


On 2rd Dec, ONEWAY celebrated  a  year end function at Theewaterkloof Dam. We were blessed to have 2 days of total relaxation, connecting with  each  other. We are reminded of  Gods  goodness  in the blessings  shown  to  us  by  people who love ONEWAY Sober  Living  & promote a life of recovery & sobriety.

Activities of swimming, braaiing, playing guitar, playing cards, tanning, skiing, fishing, were enjoyed thoroughly by all. There were many laughs, lots of life experiences shared, & real talent shown by the gents on this getaway.

Members of the community want to give to ONEWAY in ways that  they  are  able. We are truly grateful  & feel  loved  by these gestures, it promotes healing in so many ways.

A big Thank you from ONEWAY Sober Living Home
