NON-PROFIT organisation We­Serv Christian Lyric Theatre and Shisanyama has promised a night of praise, worship and good vibes at the Dominican House Chapel in Scottsville on Friday, October 25.

According to Delana Rawlins, co-founder of WeServ, the organisation is not a church but more of a Christian chill spot with live entertainment.

“I felt the need to create a space for artists because, being an artist myself, I know what is needed.

“Most of us sing in church but that’s as far as it goes. What can we as Christians do for entertainment? Is there a place where we can have fun, be entertained and still worship our Lord all at the same time?” asked Rawlins.

She added that she realised, through her Christian journey, that there are a lot of broken people who want help but feel too judged and condemned in a full gospel church.

Also, she said she wanted to create a space where people would enjoy the presence of God without feeling pressured or forced to live in a Christian way.

The main artist for the event will be a Durban group called Grace Enough.

Doors open at 5 pm and the show starts at 7 pm. Entrance is R20 for adults and is free for children under the age of 10.

“Entertainment includes singing, dancing, rapping, poetry and much more. Everything we do is unto the glory of God. We believe, through our vision, society will be reshaped and even changed.

“Our artists will have an opportunity to be mentored, to network and to socialise with other artists,” said Rawlins, adding that artists who are interested in getting a platform to showcase and work on their talent can contact her or anybody on the WeServ team.

“Interested artists will get the opportunity to network and be mentored by other artists. They have an opportunity to master their craft by having a stage with an audience to watch them.

“For the more experienced musicians, they have the opportunity to mentor junior musicians and to market their businesses through scouting for talent and then working with those they have chosen,” said Rawlins.
