Religious Event: 3 000 expected at northdale gathering

2008-06-11 00:00

About 3 000 people from Pietermaritzburg and surrounds will come together at a special Christian gathering at the Protea Sports Complex, Khan Road, Northdale from 7.30 am on Monday.

Pastor Lee Rajah said the Gathering Grounds event grew from a monthly meeting of Christian men to discuss how to manage their marriage and parental responsibilities and duties, and how to become role models in their communities.

“Gathering Grounds also attempts to foster the spirit of ubuntu as an African social engineering principle of togetherness and social cohesion,” said Rajah. The programme for June 16 features social and sporting events, including a fun-run and sports gala, a business expo and worship and prayers. For details, phone Rajah at 083 362 1673.
