Themed Amandla Ngawethu (power to the people), the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God's annual Good Friday service was attended by a record number of members who gathered together at the Ellis Park precinct for an uplifting service of prayer and preaching. Marking the solemn and holy religious day, people travelled from regions throughout Gauteng, and from as far as Cape Town, KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga, filling the Ellis Park Stadium and the Johannesburg Stadium to capacity. Overflow crowds sat on the adjacent cricket fields where they watched the event on large screens. The event was attended by Gauteng Social Development MEC Faith Mazibuko, prominent members of the ANC Women's League and 127 500 people including church members and members of the public.
