A Gauteng church is evangelising in a different way, just wait for it…how about beer during church service.
The Gobola Church in Johannesburg has opened its doors and bottles to these groups of people, serving them beer during services
Congregants openly drink and pray, with the approval of the Bishop.
But the SA Council of Churches says people are attracted to the Gabola Church because it satisfies their desire to drink liquor.
The church’s Bishop Tsietsi Matiki said that the church was a “perfect place” for drinkers and smokers.
The church says it prides itself as a home for those rejected because of their love of alcohol.
But the Council says this is not a church.
Some congregants say they’ve found their perfect place of worship – but no under 20’s are welcome, NewsBroadcastNG reported.
The church has recently opened a branch in the Free State and it plans to extend its reach to other parts of the country.
This is now probably the most famous drinking spot in Orange Farm, outside Johannesburg.
