PRETORIA – The Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church draws arguably the largest crowds compared to any other congregation in Pretoria.

Streets adjacent to the church, which is housed in the vast Pretoria Events Centre, are a hive of activity on many days each week as vehicles bearing registration plates from all South African provinces stream into the vast enclosure for evening prayers.
