Amandla Ngawethu: The Sound of Freedom cancelled

On Sunday 15 March 2020, President Cyril Ramaphosa declared a state of national disaster in relation to COVID-19 – the Coronavirus which has been declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organisation.

He announced drastic measures to help prevent the spread of the virus and protect South Africans from falling ill.

One of these was a ban on all public gatherings of more than 100 people. Despite already having organised Amandla Ngawethu events in many centres, the Universal Church will comply with this restriction and has cancelled all events until further notice.

This is indeed a disappointment for us all as these services are a highlight of our year and a blessing for thousands. At this challenging time, we need to come together in faith and pray for our nation. We know that Jesus Christ is the Lord and we pray that our nation will be blessed, protected and strengthened as we overcome the challenges of this virus together.

We will keep you updated on our plans, so please keep in touch through our social media platforms.

May God bless you all.
