BEER CHURCH POPULAR IN JOHANNESBURG
Churches have never been in alignment with alcohol consumption throughout history, however, one local church has defied this conventional norm. Situated in Orange Farm, Gauteng Gabola Church prides itself in catering for society's outcasts popularly known as 'drunkards.
Having been established only a few months ago this church is already boasting 500 members and appears to be growing rapidly. The congregation is offered alcohol during a sermon and members are baptised with the brand of their choice.
The pastor always starts the service with a glass of whisky and prays for all the alcohol that will be consumed throughout the sermon. He firmly believes that Jesus turned water into wine for this particular purpose and therefore drinkers should not be ashamed to indulge.
Church services are held in a tavern and everyone is invited!!!
