Lay Preachers Workshop

Bishop PP Buthelezi hosted the SED Lay Preachers’ workshops over the last two weekends at uMphumulo. They were very informative and exciting. A great time was had by all participants. Apart from the Bishop himself, facilitators included the likes of Mr BB Biyela and Rev Myaka. The participants themselves were very vibrant and engaging.

There was never a dull moment as the likes of Rev MaBiyela Buthelezi, Rev Myaka and Mr Falithenjwa Mkhize kept the participants entertained with music. It is hoped another even bigger and better workshop will be held again early in 2017. Watch this space…

A Lay Preachers’ Interim Committee was formed to help with other workshops going forward.
