Restoring the Ancient Paths

Derech HaMashiach started in 1996, when the Lord gave Ralf a verse from Romans Chapter 15. The verse says this:

“to be a servant of the Messiah Yeshua for the Gentiles, with the priestly duty of presenting the Good News of God, so that the Gentiles may be an acceptable offering, made holy by the Ruach HaKodesh”.


This verse laid dormant for almost 21 years, while Ralf, his wife Marie and their family searched for G-d’s truths, every now and then coming across the Ancient Path. It wasn’t until they made the decision to start their journey in Messianic Judaism, that G-d resurrected Romans 15:16, which gave birth to Derech HaMashiach.

Derech HaMashiach is not so much about restoring the Ancient Path, but working our way back along that path and helping others to find and navigate it as well. The path was never really broken, it was just that we never really travelled it in all its fullness.

Today, G-d is asking all of us to look at the ancient paths and choose the one that is good. There is only one that leads to true rest for the soul. Yeshua always was and will be the Door to that path that leads to the Ancient of Days, but if we don’t walk that path in the framework of a Jewish Messiah, we must ask ourselves the question, “which ancient path are we on?”

Why don’t you come and join us at Derech HaMashiach – House of Messianic Learning, as we discover the Ancient Path of Yeshua, the Jewish Rabbi.

What to expect

What can you expect if you come along to one of our services!

Derech HaMashiach exists to provide an environment of prayer, worship, study and learning.

As a Kehila (fellowship) we gather together every Shabbat morning and welcome all those who wish to join us for Shacharit Prayer, followed by a light fellowship lunch and then our Torah service. Our Torah service follows the yearly reading cycle based on the calendar that mainstream Judaism uses. We read and study the Torah Parsha that millions of others (both Jew and Grafted In Gentile) study every week. This is not a time where you will be preached at but a time to learn G-d’s Word through listening and respectful discussion.

Our service times are specifically tailored for those who have, or are, embracing the walk of Messianic Judaism, and wish to join us on this exciting journey, and visitors are always welcome. We are establishing a unique environment with a mix of Hebrew and English that will allow everyone to participate and draw closer to G-d individually and as a community.

Our Beit Midrash (House of Messianic Learning) starts in the afternoon with a short time of fellowship over a cup of coffee. We offer several levels of study and learning. These times are specifically open to Believers in G-d from other walks of faith, in particular Christianity and Judaism. You do not need to be a member of our Kehila (fellowship) to join us for our Beit Midrash time.

Our Beit Midrash now offers studies from the basic beginner’s level about Messianic Judaism (Kosher Pastor) to the advanced Yeshiva level (Yeshivat Shuvu) for those serious about understanding the ways of Judaism and how it is lived out by Believers in Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ).

Children for the ages of 5 to 10 years old are also catered for with our program called Shuvu Yeladim.

Why not come along and learn the ways of HaShem with us! We’d love to see you there.

Who are we Associated With


Yeshivat Shuvu

The primary goal of the Yeshiva is ultimately to equip disciples with the proper framework and practical tools from the Torah, the Disciples, and ultimately Yeshua himself, to make an impact on the world around them.


Ahavat Ammi

Rabbi Shapira is the founding Rabbi of Ahavat Ammi Ministries, an international Jewish Organisation focused on reconciliation between Jews and Yeshua. In Hebrew, the word Ahavah
(אהבה) or love, carries a special meaning. It speaks of the 13 attributes of G-d that defines His love towards His people.


Aydat HaDerekh

Rabbi Bernstein is a professor at Shuvu Yeshiva and received Smicha there in December 2014. He was ordained in 2010, and has taken over leadership of Aydat HaDerekh Messianic Synagogue.


Australasian Alliance of Messianic Congregations (AAMC)

Who Do We Support

At Derech HaMashiach we support a number of local and overseas organisations and ministries that we have relationship with and that we know are making a difference at the grass roots level. We, at Derech HaMashiach, have pledged to ensure that 100% of all Tzedakah giving will go directly to these organisations we support. There will be no handling or transfer or exchange fees deducted. This is fully transparent, because every year at our AGM we present the previous year’s financial transactions to the membership.

International Support - Venezuela

As you may be aware, the political and economic situation in Venezuela is not very stable. Many of the poor are struggling to stay alive, food is extremely expensive and medication even more so, when it is available. Derech HaMashiach supports two groups, one in a rural area, near a powerful military base (the military is not pro Messianic Believers), they have limited internet, etc and food is rationed, and so any extra food for the children can cost 5 to 6 times more on the black market. Typically, the children get one solid meal every 3 to 4 days, and then some small snacks in between to sustain them to the next solid meal. The other group has the blessing of HaShem, in that they have access to be able to purchase more food at normal market price. Medication and hospital visits are what requires our support here. These children are blind or partially sighted and some also have cancer and need to get regular treatment for their ailments.


Our support helps the children get medication and medical treatment, and is helping the group in the rural area invest in things that will produce ongoing food supplies like sheep and other agriculturally sustainable items.


Here are some videos of the children and some of the workers, thanking us in Australia for our support. They are working at registering a Messianic Fellowship umbrella group so that they will get some legal recognition and hopefully more support from others. Already groups in Hawaii, New Zealand, Austria and ex-Venezuelans in Australia are also supporting them, but the need is big.


The biggest need is for prayer; Protection from the authorities, and healing for the children, and a change in government from the current dictatorship.


If you want to support this work, you can give your charity to us and we will ensure that 100% will get to the people who need it. Or you can click on the link and donate via the GoFundMe campaign.


International Support - Israel:

Derech HaMashiach provides regular support for Holocaust survivors through the “Adopt a Holocaust Survivor” program operated by Abundant Bread of Salvation. The main goal of this ministry is to fulfil the Hebrew scripture of Isaiah 40, that says: "Comfort, comfort my people, says your God!"


All of these people are well into their 80's and many of them in their 90's, their time is short, and their strength and health is dwindling daily.  Many of these precious one, must choose between putting food on their tables or buying life sustaining medications.  Abundant Bread of Salvation ministry does not want them to have to make this choice.  Their goal is that these survivors will live out their last days with dignity, quality of life, health, happiness and practical provision, as well as eternal life. Derech HaMashiach endeavours to support Abundant Bread of Salvation in this work.

Offerings and Tzedakah

Derech HaMashiach is a not for profit association that relies on membership fees and offerings to support this important work. We don’t push tithes and offering messages, but we do teach responsible and accountable use of finances from a Torah perspective.

If you feel led to support this work, you can give an offering at one of our meetings or use the payment methods offered on the right-hand side, under the Tzedakah box. Just enter the amount you wish to give in the "Offering" section (the total amount will automatically be updated).

Tzedakah (charity) is at the heart of Messianic Judaism, it is one of the ways to express Gemilut Hasidim (Acts of loving kindness). Yeshua told us that it is better to store our treasures in heaven where neither rust nor moths can corrupt it, or thrives can steal it. The Talmud echoes His teachings on this subject.

At Derech HaMashiach we support a number of local and overseas organisations and ministries that we have relationship with and that we know are making a difference at the grass roots level. (Scroll up to see the ministries that we support). We, at Derech HaMashiach, have pledged to ensure that 100% of all Tzedakah giving will go directly to these organizations we support. There will be no handling or transfer or exchange fees deducted. This is fully transparent, because every year Derech HaMashiach needs to have its accounts audited as an incorporated association.

You can give your Tzedakah directly at one of our meetings, but please put it in an envelope marked Tzedakah, or you can make a payment through one of the methods offered on the right-hand side, under the Tzedakah box. Just enter the amount you wish to give in the "Tzedakah" section, to ensure your Tzedakah will be used for its intended purpose (the total amount will automatically be updated).
