Go! & Express - - FRONT PAGE - DES­MOND COET­ZEE

THE Brei­d­bach com­mu­nity was mes­merised by the sweet melodies and voices of Uiten­hage-based vo­cal group the Chris­tadel­phi­ans dur­ing their Evening of Song at the Brei­d­bach Hall over the week­end.

The lo­cal Volkskerk van Afrika Women’s League or­gan­ised the event as a fundraiser and com­mended the com­mu­nity for their over­whelm­ing sup­port for the event.

“We are grate­ful for the gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tions coming from all the spon­sors that in­cluded prizes of a lucky draw for a week­end away at a guest house and items for the kiosk in oper­a­tion dur­ing the event,” Women’s League chair­per­son, Jay­lene Chris­tian said.

An elated Yu­landa Es­ben of Brei­d­bach won the prize for a week­end away and said: “I am ex­cited, over the moon. This is just un­be­liev­able”.

The evening saw the au­di­ence join in singing and danc­ing as the group, who will cel­e­brate 50 years of singing in 2019, en­ter­tained them.

Pop­u­lar hymns like Lion of Juda and Niks is On­moot­lik by die Heer were just a few of the songs per­formed and group leader Danny Ja­cobs made sure that ev­ery­one was smil­ing.

“Next year we are plan­ning to make our 50th an­niver­sary a re­mark­able one and will re­mem­ber you as our loyal sup­port­ers here in King Wil­liam’s Town and East London,” said Ja­cobs.

“I’m a loyal sup­porter of the Chris­tadel­phi­ans, never miss their show and tonight was great as al­ways,” Schornville’s An­gela Jagers said.

Brei­d­bach res­i­dent Bianca Swart­booi at­tended the show for the very first time and promised never to miss it again.

“I have en­joyed the three hours in their com­pany, the mes­sage within their songs touched me deeply,” said Swart­booi.

“The mes­sages in the song lifted me from my seat at the back with the spirit touch­ing me and mov­ing to the front where I wor­shipped and praised God,” said King Wil­liam’s Town res­i­dent Char­maine Groep, who thor­oughly en­joyed the show.
