Jesus Sang with the Believers in Cardiff North
A Report by Theophilus Gokah
On Sabbath morning invited guests and various artists assembled in the sanctuary for worship and to celebrate Black History month. The worship took a different format from the norm. Some special guests came from Reading, Kettering, Wolverhampton and London.
Excitement was in the air as the praise & worship service was already under way with the Reading and Slough Youth Choir leading with spirited renditions of songs.
The audience was treated to a powerful presentation by Pastor Newton Kawiliza. He focused on the importance of sometimes being with Jesus alone; praise & worship. The presentation was powerful and praising God for his delivering power.
The concert festivities began around 2 pm with very interesting traditional Gospel music that left a lasting impression in our memories. The aisle provided a social space for some audience in the congregation to express their joy and thankfulness to God.
There was also humour. The Master of Ceremonies, Pastor Newton, remarked about the various pastors "who shook their bodies vigorously" drew huge laughter. Before blessing the audience, the resident Pastor, George Boakye, treated the audience to one of his lyrics in which he thanked God for His blessings. Other musicians who graced the occasion were Mantongande, Nkosi Ka Ndolvu, Soloist Ezimme, Vera Selepe and the Reading-Slough Youth Choir. André Taylor led a combined Cardiff Community Choir and performed a solo saxophone rendition. It was entertaining and Spirit filled. Pictures of the day's events can be viewed in our gallery section.
