CCoH Workshop Community Chest 26-27 January 2017
Churches Channels of Hope Workshop
“I want to be that sweetness in the life of someone living with HIV.”
………….these were the words of an attendee, after we completed the closing ceremony that focused on the bitterness that this pandemic create in the lives of people infected and affected with HIV and how we as the church brings sweetness in to their lives again.
CABSA in collaboration with Community Chest held a two day workshop in Belhar in Cape Town. Pastors and faith leaders from different denominations was in attendance.
There was liberty in sharing individual struggles and experiences to the point that there was no dry eye left in the workshop. But there was not only tears as we engaged in the activities and discussions in group work. One gentleman said the following; “……..I’ve been to four HIV & AIDS workshops already but this one blew my mind away”
Another minister said that if he could have his way, he will make this workshop compulsery for all churches. The two days has been a real enriching experience even for the CABSA staff as we in a refreshing way experience the presence of the Lord.
