Historical church service at the Oslo Cathedral


     Ambassador Zondo


21 September 2014
 
On Sunday 21 September 2014, Ambassador Zondo of the Oslo Mission in collaboration with the Church of Norway arranged a church service at the notable Oslo Cathedral.
It was a time for reflection and gratitude, reminiscing the two decades passed, commemorating the rainbow nation’s anniversary of freedom and democracy in the capital of Norway.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Ambassador Zondo delivered stunning speeches, where they both expressed their appreciation of the Norwegian support during the times of struggle.
From the Norwegian side, members of the church were heavily involved in the South African liberation fight.
Song of Freedom Choir, Inkululeko and Bafana Nhlapo provided the musical entertainment, and it proved to be an absolutely extraordinary and magical event.
The church service gathered a huge audience, including diplomats, the South African community in Norway, business contacts, academia, friends of South Africa and the national media.
After the church ceremony the attendees were invited for SA specialties and socialising at the cathedral premises.
