THE new Holiness Union Church (Huc) Betania East Circuit, Gamalakhe branch building was officially opened on Saturday, 7 January, with more than 500 people attending the event, hosted by Pastor MD Mchunu.

Mchunu gave a background of how the project was started in 2011 and highlighted the different stages and the total expenditure incurred.

“This project costs slightly above a million rand to date. There are still touch-ups needed, and we are grateful to God that today we are opening the building officially.”

Included on the guest list was Dr Kwazi Mbanjwa, the Huc National Council chairperson.

Mbanjwa praised church members for contributing to the house of the Lord and encouraged them and the Betania East circuit to take care of the new building.

Mbanjwa said that although the building belonged to the church, it must be open to service the needs of the entire community.

Also gracing the event were pastors from churches in Gamalakhe, Durban, Pietermaritzburg, Zululand and other areas.

Chairperson of all Huc pastors in South Africa, Pastor Mambo Mkhize congratulated the church and the building committee and encouraged members to make it their priority to take care of the pastor and his family.

Church leadership, guests and the community were led to the building by the Umtwalume Brass Band for the official cutting of the ribbon, marking the official opening.

Huc members invited the community to join them every Sunday from 9am to 11.30am.
