Do you want God to bless South Africa? Are you praying for Revival?

Every year we lose more pre-born babies to abortion than the combined death toll of crime and car accidents. Since 1 February 1997, over one million, five hundred thousand babies have been killed in South Africa - by abortion - with taxpayers’ money.

Legalised abortion is a national disgrace. The 1st of February 2018 will mark the 21st anniversary of the legalisation of abortion on demand in South Africa. For this reason, Christians who respect the Sanctity of Life will be observing 1 February as a day of Prayer and Repentance for the national sin of abortion. Pastors throughout the country preached on the Sanctity of Life on Sanctity Life Sunday (28 January), and congregations in every province joined in prayers of repentance.


Prayer and Action
On Thursday, 1 February, Africa Christian Action will be holding a Prayer Rally outside the gates of Parliament (at the corner of Roeland and Plein Streets) from 13:00pm to 1:30pm. A short Memorial Service and wreath laying ceremony will be held in memory of the babies killed by abortion in South Africa since 1997.


March for Life
This will be preceded by a March for Life – in the form of a Funeral Procession to Parliament. The procession will gather at the Keizersgracht parking lot below Cape Peninsula University of Technology (and near to the wall painting of an African woman) and march down Darling Street, left into Buitenkant Street, then into Plein Street. Meet in Keizersgracht Street by 12:30pm. Please dress in black.

Save Lives – Stop Abortions
In order to alert Capetonians to the reality of the abortion holocaust taking place in our land, Africa Christian Action has hired a hearse to lead our procession and mourners will carry coffins, crosses and flowers in memory of the victims of abortion. The funeral procession will be accompanied by the Africa Christian Action trailer, a special six metre by three metre display board with pictures of pre-born babies and with the Scriptures: "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves" Proverbs 31:8; and " Choose life so that you and your children may live." Deuteronomy 30:19. Special obituary notices will also be posted on social media.


Make a Stand for Life
Please join us for the March for Life, or meet us outside the gates of Parliament for the Prayer Vigil. Alternatively, you can organise your own Pro-life Prayer Vigil or demonstration outside an abortion clinic/hospital in your own city.

"Could you men not keep watch with Me for one hour?" Matthew 26:14


"If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
