2010-12-01 00:00

ABOUT 3 500 members of churches in the Ugu district attended a church crusade that was held at the Marburg Sports Grounds on Saturday.

The meeting was hosted by Christ Kingdom Ministries.

The event organiser and pastor at the Salem Evangelical Church in Marburg, Herald Steven, said the meeting was a success for a number of reasons.

“The meeting was completely multiracial and we had people coming from all over Ugu and even from as far as Durban,” Steven said. “It was also very good in the way it encouraged unity among different churches in working together.”

Pastor Anil Manilall was one of the main co-ordinators of the gathering, which saw prayers being said for church members in attendance.

Steven said, “There was also a focus to inspire hope in the different communities that were represented.”

He added that the meeting drew more than 100 pastors from all over the Ugu District and that it achieved what it had set out to do.
