KZN: Jehovah’s Witnesses to convene

2010-08-23 00:00

JEHOVAH’S Witnesses are to stage a series of district conventions in KwaZulu-Natal aimed at at what it calls spiritually empowering people who are struggling in to remain close to God and live a righteous life.

The district conventions are themed: “Remain close to Jehovah!”.

Everyone is invited. Admission to the convention is free, and no collections will be taken.

Neville Christison, one of the organisers, said the first event in KwaZulu-Natal will be held in English at Durban’s Absa Stadium from September 3 to 5.

During October, IsiZulu language conventions will be held at the Chatsworth Stadium.

An English convention will follow during December at the Royal Showgrounds in Pietermaritzburg.

“The programme is designed to provide encouragement in the difficult times in which we live and to strengthen the spirituality of those attending,” Christison said.

He added that over the four convention weekends between September and December, an estimated 20 000 worshippers will meet in KwaZulu-Natal alone.
