The tag line this year is “press for progress” which echoes the theme of the annual Diakonia Good Friday Service: Do not Fear Stand Firm! A battle-cry to mobilise people around the many social justice issues including standing firm on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality.
The annual Diakonia Council of Churches Good Friday Service will take place at dawn at the Durban Exhibition Centre: 5:15am Friday 30 March – entrance is free and all are welcome. The sermon will be delivered by Revd Thulani Ndlazi – the Synod Secretary of the United Congregational Church of Southern Africa
