Blantyre CCAP Synod last week applauded government for working with the church in promoting peopleâ€™s welfare.
Deputy general secretary Cliff Nyekanyeka said this when the synod was celebrating the Power of the Gospel Music festival at the College of Medicine in Blantyre.
â€œWe appreciate what some Members of Parliament, such as Moses Kunkuyu, are doing like launching gospel trophy competitions in their constituencies. This demonstrates governmentâ€™s commitment in promoting the work of God through gospel music,â€ said Nyekanyeka.
Kunkuyu said six choirs have reached finals of his competition. He said five of the choirs are from CCAP.
â€œThe church and government serve the same people. As such, they should work together and complement each other,â€ he said.
Margaret Kamkwamba, Reverend Songola and Reverend Ngwale were recognised for pioneering gospel music in the synod.
