The 'Church Train' in Cape Town is Revolutionary for Faith

 - Jul 1, 2013
The 'Church Train,' located in Cape Town, South Africa, is one of the most inventive ways yet to hold a religious service. A personal account by Asanda Kaka, a writer for, recounts, "the locomotive rushes into the platform, and gospel hits my ear from one of its carriages."

With over 50 regular patrons every week, the Church Train is a fascinating way to partake in religion on-the-go and work it into everyday life. The preacher of the Church Train, Luphumzo Sokoyi, comments, "We saw how people around us were sad and hopeless, and we thought public transport is a great place to use the word of God to empower and give hope to the otherwise hopeless poor of South Africa."
