Praying for Mitchell’s Plain

2015-05-05 06:00

Religious leaders have come together to pray for peace at the second interfaith prayer in Rocklands on Saturday 21 March.

As resolved in December, the interfaith sector honoured the commitment to gather quarterly at the Rocklands Lookout Hill.

The group meet to discuss proposals and pray against the social ills currently transpiring within Mitchell’s Plain.

Local ward councillors, religious leaders, police and community police forum representatives, neighbourhood watch members and other organisations were in attendance.

Ward councillor and Subcouncil 12 chairperson Eddie Andrews articulated the need to meet and highlighted the importance for government, civil society and the faith based sector to meet and pray for the community.

“A Mitchell’s Plain faith-based forum will be formed to dialogue with government with the view to sustain proactive and reactive interventions and not to unnecessarily duplicate projects. The sector will also be informed of resources that could be accessed from both the City of Cape Town and provincial government,” Andrews says.

The enhanced relationship would allow for the cross-pollination of resources with the possibility to reach more beneficiaries.

Faith-based leaders are requested to contact Andrew’s office to register the information. Those registered will be invited to attend the next dialogue with the faith-based sector
