Radio Veritas South Africa and Radio Pulpit made history as the Church in South Africa joined the global community in praying with and for women recently. A record-breaking attendance of 3 000 women of different Christian denominations attended the Women’s World Day of Prayer Service, at the Regina Mundi Catholic Church in Moroka, Soweto, on Saturday 2nd March.

The Day was initiated by the International Women’s World Day of Prayer ecumenical movement some 89 years ago, and is celebrated in more than 170 countries with the country of Slovenia being the main focus this year. Testimonies from Slovenian women were submitted outlining the hardships that they go through.

Rev. Nomsa Nomqolo, a minister of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa presided over the service this year. She is also the Superintendent of the Orlando Circuit which caters for Orlando West Methodist Church, Orlando North, Orlando East, Noordgesig and Pennyville respectively.

The keynote speaker  at the day of prayer was the iconic Mrs. Sophia (Sophie) Williams De Bruyn, who on the 9 August, 1956, together with Lillian Ngoyi, Rahima Moosa, and Helen Joseph, led the march of 20 000 women from Pretoria to the Union Buildings to hand over petitions opposing the Pass Laws.

Other speakers included Her Excellency, Ambassador Dr. Lindiwe Mabuza who was recently awarded the Order of the Polar Star by His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, Pastor Gwendoline Matshoba-Sibeko and Pastor Anna Mmotlana.

This year’s theme was based on the words from the parable of Luke 14:  15 – 24 – Come, Everything is Ready. This was indeed a groundbreaking day for Women and the Church in South Africa.
