MEN’S REVIVAL SPARKLES AS CHURCH RETURNS IN STYLE
Cranborne Circuit witnessed a reinvigoration of life as the circuit welcomed most of its members back to in person worship for the first time in months in a lively worship service held on September 12.
Following the government’s latest pronouncements in its response to the global coronavirus pandemic and the relaxed lockdown measures under Level 2, most members thronged the sanctuary for the first time in months, creating a lively yet emotional atmosphere.
The church has been open prior for three weeks, albeit under the previous regulations which only allowed vaccinated members to attend.
Under the new measures, congregants, vaccinated or not, can now attend services.
Its was special that the first Sunday under the new lockdown measures which now allows gatherings of up to 100 people had to be a revival with the United Methodist Men’s Fellowship (MUMC) capping their week which also coincided with the confirmation of members and the badging of new members in the Rukwadzano RweWadzimai (RRW).
Mrs Christine Musukutwa and Mrs Sandra Mavuto became the newest inductees into the RRW organisation whilst 22 members became full members in the United Methodist Church.
Mr Rangarirai Nyahodza was the guest preacher on MUMC Sunday as he preached on “Sufficient grace”.
The day saw the Harare East District Superintendent Reverend Oscar Mukahanana and Amai Emmah gracing the occasion with Reverend Faith Nyagato also making an appearance.
The church officially welcomed back former Pastor In Charge Retired Reverend Kennedy Mafana Marange who now joins the circuit, bringing to two the number of retired pastors at the church alongside Reverend Kaiboni Nkomo.
The church also took time to appreciate pastors for the services they render to the church.
It was a packed service that brought a synonymous positive vibe the church sorely missed after a rollercoaster few months under the lockdown in which the church celebrated its Harvest Thanksgiving virtually, the charge conference and lost Mrs Irene Mugurwa and former treasurer Mr Edwin Chimbadzwa.
