Women pray together

Posted in Latest News

Klerksdorp Midweek, Klerksdorp - The Women’s World Day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Christian women, men and children of many traditions who came together to observe a common day of prayer on the first Friday in March.

The local committee met informally as they could not get together for prayer due to Covid. Accor-ding to Margaret Heylen, they decided it will go ahead despite the challenges due to the pandemic.

“Some people followed the international link which had lots of information about the focus country, Vanuatu. Locally, women mainly followed the local link by Live FM,’’ she said.

The international service can still be viewed on Youtube. Rev Marike Jacobs of NG Doringkruin led the service that was broadcast by Live FM.

The Klerksdorp committee will meet at Makadu Restaurant at 11:00 on Friday 12 March to give thanks. It is an open meeting and people are welcome to join. More information from Margaret Heylen at 083 310 5080 / 018 468 1368.
