- Prophet Bushiri's New Year's Eve Service is a popular event and his church thinks it will draw around 30 000 people
- The service will be held at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg
- This year’s Crossover Service has been dubbed the ‘Night of God’s Open Hands’
As the new year quickly approaches, admirers of Prophet Shepherd Bushiri are looking forward to his end-of-the-year service.
Bushiri's New Year's Eve service is going to take place at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on the last night of 2019.
A statement by the popular preacher's Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church says it is expected that thousands of people will attend the yearly event.
More than 30 000 people will come from over 30 countries for this service and will join local church members.
"This year’s Crossover Service - dubbed the ‘Night of God’s Open Hands’ - is set to replicate the mammoth attendance that has characterised the event over the years."
The concern for all those arriving in Gauteng for the event is being taken seriously. TimesLIVE reported that the church is working with different stakeholders in SA's tourism industry to help work out mechanisms to ensure the safety and security of visitors.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Bushiri said men have a God-given responsibility to protect women. He added God created men for the purpose of protecting women and that men were failing in their responsibility.
While addressing his thousands of followers at the ECG's Iron Man Conference hosted at the Coca Cola Dome in Johannesburg Bushiri called on the 20 000 attendees to step up and do their part in stopping GBV.
