As Christians are fast approaching Easter Period, Blantyre Joint Choir, an inter-domination choir group, has announced that it will hold Easter Cantata that will be a “mixture of singing and bible readings” as part of celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
This Easter Cantata will take place on Palm Sunday, March 29, 2015 at the Henry Henderson Institute (HHI) Multipurpose Hall in Blantyre.
The event, first of its kind, is also aimed at adding “vibes” and “excitement” to Easter, an important festive period on Christian calendar, according to the organizing chairperson, Gospel Mavutula.
“Easter is one of the important events on Christian calendar, but people do not give it much hype as they do with Christmas and New Year festivities.
“So Blantyre Joint Choir aims to bring more excitement and highlight the importance of the Easter Period through singing and bible readings while celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ,” said Mavutula.
Easter is a festival celebrated by Christians and it does not have fixed. It is celebrated on the first Sunday of a full moon day after March 21. It usually falls between March 21 and April 25.
“Apart from the singing, we also have several bible verses regarding the season we are in. So will it be a mixture of singing and bible readings throughout.
“We have identified good bible readers from member churches to spice the event with their audible voices,” explained Mavutula.
According to him, Blantyre Joint Choir is affiliated to the Evangelical Association of Malawi (ECM) whose membership comprises Seventh Adventist Church, the Central Church of Africa Presbyterian (CCAP), Calvary Family Church, Living Waters Church, Anglican, Roman Catholic, Zambezi and Assemblies of God, among others.
“The event is for free and the door is open to all Christians who value the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Members of Blantyre Joint Choir come from different churches within Blantyre, so the event is open to all people,” said Mavutula.
Other groups expected to perform during the Easter Cantata are Michiru CCAP Youth Choir, Calvary Family Church Praise Team, Soche Anglican’s Christ the King Choir and Word Alive Praise Team, among others.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
