Church Of Drunkards Donates To Orphanage
Ziva Mwari Congregation Church (ZMCC) says it has a heart for the poor and suffering and has since donated some goodies to the Masembura Orphanage Centre in Bindura.
ZMCC was launched a few weeks ago in the Mashonaland Central provincial capital and claims to have more than 100 devoted members in its ranks.
The church’s membership is drawn from people who habitually drink beer and smoke cigarettes but also want to spend an hour every Sunday worshipping.
The congregants meet every Sunday between 9-10 am at a neglected bar in Bindura and during their time of worship, no drinking and smoking are allowed.
Speaking in an interview with H-Metro, Richard Twabi, who is the pioneer, said they have a different approach from mainline denominations. Said Twabi:

We have a different approach altogether. As ZMCC, we want society to understand that it’s not all about beer and smoking, we are also responsible.
Despite the fact that we drink beer, we are a loving and caring community, which also feels for others.
ZMCC recently donated clothes, bags of maize, sanitary wear and various foodstuffs to the orphanage.
The church also committed itself to pay school fees for some kids, at the orphanage, from their church offerings. Added Twabi:
We also pledged to repair a leaking Jojo tank, paint the dining room and also clean up the centre.
The congregants are also planning to visit those behind bars at Bindura Prison where they will preach the gospel to help them reform.
