AFTER the devastating rain and gale-force winds on Monday night, members of the
Congregation Faith Church in Bhomela are now without a church.

Pastor Andile Mafu said the front of the building was destroyed.

“The building was very old as it was built in the eighties.

“Monday’s weather was bad and the front of the mud-walled building collapsed,” said Mafu.

He said members shouldn’t worry about the weekend service because the building next to the church will be used until enough funds are raised to build a new one.
