Enlightened Christian Gathering Church’s Youth Magnets will host a first ever Youth Festival at Pretoria Showgrounds at 09:00 am this Saturday.
The festival, which is a few weeks to Spring Day is expected to provide a clean alternative for young people who want to drop their winter gear in anticipation of spring.
A high profile cast of gospel celebrities is expected to entertain guests and participants, the highlight being Major1 Records star, Elegant, who is expected to usher Prophet Bushiri.
Speaking exclusively to ECG News Online, Winnie Chirengwana said the Youth Festival was aimed at giving youth a chance to showcase their talent in a clean environment.
“This event is all about coming together as a youth to celebrate the gospel and each others talents while having fun,” she said.
Some of the activities which participants are expected to engage in include Netball, Football and Volleyball.
“The Prophet is very happy about the festival. He will be in full sports gear and him and the Prophetess will also be playing different sports. This setting will offer the youth a chance to interact with him outside the pulpit”, Ephraim Nyondo, Bushiri’s spokesperson told ECG News online.
Chirengwana encouraged youths who want to participate in games to register early.
“Those who want to participate in the games should arrive early as registration takes place between 07:00 and 09:00”
