HE public is invited to experience the Passover as it is commemorated in Jerusalem, from 9 to 20 April at the NG Kerk Suidkus.

The Lord Jesus’ way of suffering ( Via Dolorosa) has been commemorated for many centuries in Jerusalem along a route with certain stations of remembrance. This year the church, with the Bible as foundation, choose the version of the way of suffering that starts with Passover, past the Cross on Calvary, to the empty grave and beyond to commemorate.

Visitors will be welcomed at the door and receive a booklet explaining the journey through the stations. They then move from one station to the next reading the relevant Bible verse and doing the activity in the booklet.

There will be activities for young children, while their parents participate. The event runs from 8am to 8pm daily - it began on 9 April until 22 April. People who are unable to attend the “It’s time” prayer day on Saturday, 22 April with Angus Buchan in Bloemfontein can come to the church and pray for the country.

“It’s time” is the result of a call from a farmer on social media to pray against farm murders and for the Holy Spirit to reign in our country.

The Passover will be held at NG Kerk Suidkus, in 9 Frost Street, Amanzimtoti. For further information contact them on 031 903 6567 or 031 903 8248.
