_Unity in South Africa was founded in 2002 by Reverend Tandi Nhlengetwa as Unity Center of Love and Light. It began as an inspirational radio ministry which attracted the first five students that came together to start a study class. This radio ministry won the Association’s Pathfinder Radio Award in 2002.
_Developing Unity Leaders
_The focus of the teaching ministry was mainly on spiritual education classes for the purpose of developing Unity leaders in South Africa. In 2006 the church, through the sponsorship of Unity Church of Fort Worth (Paul Roach, senior minister), sent their first student to Unity Village for a “C” session of the SEE program towards becoming a Licensed Unity Teacher. Now there are about five students that are on their way to becoming Licensed Unity Teachers.
_Spiritual Social Action
_Unity in South Africa is actively involved in spiritual social action. In response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic in South Africa, Unity Center of Love and Light became involve in the care of orphans, by giving food parcels to orphaned children and spiritual care for people living with HIV/AIDS. That was done through the Center’s Compassionate Hearts Ministry.
Church services are held every Sunday 11 a.m. at Cida City Campus in Central Johannesburg, with an average of 20-35 people in attendance. Rev. Thandi’s vision is to have a Unity radio presence in Southern Africa, and to expand Unity’s presence to other major cities of South Africa like Durban and Cape Town.
