In early August over 300 people from our Hills African community gathered together to connect, worship, and celebrate the different cultures from the continent.
Our community leader, Henry Ike shared his thoughts about the event:
For many months, we worked hard, prepared, rehearsed and prayed to see the Chapel filled with people praising and worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ. The night was filled with African sound and rhythmas we “Africanised” some of the Hillsong’s classic songs. The people couldn’t wait to get on their feet to sway and dance and praise.
One of the highlights was the performance by up and comingartist, New Zealand-based Amara, who sang “I Surrender”.
Our volunteer team was made up of Afrofest and our Hillsong African college students and church members.We are so grateful for them!
The night was a huge success because it was about building community and bringing people together.Ourhopeisto see people get pluggedinto Connect groups,andfornew and potential leaders emergefrom our community.
To God be the glory!
