Scores of women from various denominations converged in Chinhoyi for a ‘high tea’ event, amid calls for modern women to unite and set aside religious differences to pray for the nation.

The ‘high tea’ event, which was organised by the ZAOGA Forward in Faith ministry, was attended by women who have made a name for themselves in the social and economic spheres in Mashonaland West Province.

The inter-denominational platform gave women an opportunity to interact and to balance between family, church and business.

Chairperson of the Today’s Woman Inter-Denominational Conference, Pastor Lucy Kawenda urged women to unite and take a lead in praying for the nation.

The event was an outreach programme for the Today’s Women Conference to be held at the Glamis Arena in Harare later this month.

Co-ordinator of the conference, Pastor Abigail Magwenzi said the conference was meant to empower women spiritually, economically and socially.

She said the conference was open to all women including non-believers, sex workers and prisoners.

Women who attended the ‘high tea’ event also got a chance to hear the word of God from renowned speaker, Pastor Violet Kadunge, who had no kind words for women who commit suicide or run away from families in times of trouble.

The Today’s Woman Inter-Denominational Conference will be held at the Glamis Arena in Harare from the 27th to the 29th of this month.
