Mandela Memorial Service
19th December 2013
 
 


Last night All Saints hosted the Borough’s Memorial Service for the late Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (1918-2003). Mandela visited Northampton in April 2000 whilst en route to Bedford to unveil a statue of the prominent campaigner against Apartheid, Bishop Trevor Huddleston. Our own Parish Priest, Fr David McConkey, also worked for the peace and reconciliation movement whilst working as Rector of St Elizabeth’s Harare in Zimbabwe between 1994 and 2003.

Fr McConkey gave a stirring sermon to the congregation of over 150 people on the life and work of Mandela, and on the challenges still faced throughout Africa. We were also delighted to host the Royal and Derngate Community Choir, the Choir of the New Testament Church of God and the New Ark Foundation African Choir, who gave performances of Gospel and African music. Representatives from six faith groups led the prayers and the service concluded with the singing of N’kosi sikelel’i Afrika. The order of service can be downloaded here.
