Zomba City Presbytery of the CCAP Blantyre Synod has said engaging children in music, drama, Bible quiz as well as verse recitals is key to the children’s spiritual growth.
The presbytery’s Sunday School events chairperson Alfred Maganisha made the call last Saturday at Zomba CCAP Primary School Hall during an event aimed at deepening children’s faith in God through art.
Maganisha said the scope of the talent promotion is to play up the scriptures through singing as well acting either in drama or recitals to make the scriptures live to enable the children to understand the gospel with ease.
The event saw Chinamwali CCAP Sunday School choir grabbing the music championship title, defeating nine other contestants.
The choir’s music director Davie Nahawa said their secret to success was hard work and determination.
“We are not surprised with the results because this is the direct result of the hardworking spirit we invested during preparations for the event. We urge other children to emulate this example,” said Nahawa.
In drama, Naisi CCAP Sunday School grabbed the title, seconded by Cobbe Barracks whereas Afiki Libwalo of Chinamwali CCAP emerged the best poet. Mulunguzi, Police, Nalikukuta and Cobbe Barracks Sunday schools shined in verses recitals and Bible quiz.
Maganisha said the winning groups qualified for the Blantyre Synod talent promotion finals to take place at St Columba in Blantyre later this year. n
