Do you have a receipt from the church of the amount put on your account account at the time? Or do you just have a credit card receipt in Euros value at the time ( 1800)? Do you have proof of the date of payment? The value of the EURO in SA Rand (R) can be found for that date, if you know the date.

Fact is, on the date that you gave the money your 1800 € was equivalent to the SA Rand (R) of that time and it should have been noted in and on your account and receipt. Today your 1800€ = R24,317.5 or $2,434.54 US dollars but that is not what you would get if you know the date, have proof of the date. Your case would not qualify for small claims because it would be for more that R12 000 but you could go to the District magistrate court and sue. Possibly without an attorney.

The Magistrates’ Courts are the lower courts which deal with the less serious criminal and civil cases. They are divided into regional courts and district courts. In Criminal Courts the state prosecutes people for breaking the law. Criminal Courts can be divided into two groups:

Regional Magistrate's Courts
Ordinary Magistrate's Courts (also called District Courts) [..]

The ordinary Magistrates’ Courts can hear civil cases when the claims are for less than R100 000. They cannot deal with certain matters, such as:

divorce;
arguments about a person's will;
matters where it is asked if a person is mentally sane or not. [..]

The ordinary Magistrates’ Courts can hear civil cases when the claims are for less than R100 000. They cannot deal with certain matters, such as:

divorce;
arguments about a person's will;
matters where it is asked if a person is mentally sane or not.

The most serious criminal matters are heard in the High Court. There are also a number of magistrates’ courts that are specialised to be better able to deal with certain types of matters, such as the children’s courts, sexual offences courts, etc.

If you feel you are being discriminated because you are no longer a scientologist you can sue here by filing your own complaint:

Equality Courts have been set up to help someone who believes that they have suffered unfair discrimination, hate speech or harassment. These courts make sure that it is easy for someone with such a case to bring their case to the court and that the issue is finalised quickly.

Anyone can take a case to the Equality Court, even if you are not directly involved in what happened. This means a complaint to the court can be made against someone or an organisation you believe have failed to respect the rights of another person.

The Equality Courts deal with complaints that are about unfair discrimination, hate speech or harassment. If you believe you or someone was treated badly because of hatred or bias based on one of the following:-

Race
gender
pregnancy
marital status
ethnic or social origin
colour of your skin
sexual orientation
age
disability
religion, conscience & belief
culture
language
birth
Nationality
HIV status, or perceived status
economic or social status or
family responsibility and status

You can take your complaint to your nearest Equality Court. The establishment of the Equality Courts seeks to achieve the expeditious and informal processing of cases, which facilitate participation by the parties to the proceedings, and also seeks to ensure access to justice to all persons in relevant judicial and other dispute resolution forums.
