It is perhaps fitting that a place that was named for its location between two distinct worlds, Johannesburg and Pretoria, today possesses a unique combination of spiritual sites. Midrand, until 1981, was called Halfway House. Between then and now the commercial centre, warehousing and suburbs that have grown up around what was once a few corporate HQs, now almost seamlessly integrates Gauteng’s two major cities. So much so, that in 2010 it was reported that the City of Tshwane - Pretoria - municipality made a failed bid to annex the area. Few people would rate Midrand as a site of pilgrimage, but with a Gautrain station and three extraordinary places of worship curious visitors will be rewarded.
