Representatives from pro-life congregations and organisations in South Africa are invited to participate in the annual National Alliance for Life Conference which will be taking place on Saturday 5 October 2019, 9:00am – 13:00, at Gateway Church, Umhlanga. For those in the Cape who cannot participate in the NAL Conference, there will be the Western Cape Alliance for Life Conference also on Saturday, 5 October in Milnerton (see details below). The following day, Sunday 6 October 2019, there will be the National March for Life in Durban and the Life Chain in Cape Town.

Purpose of National Alliance for Life
The National Alliance for Life (NAL) is an umbrella body that was formed in 1995 and is the only body which represents all pro-life organizations and churches in South Africa. It was formed to create a platform for pro-lifers in South Africa to plan and act together. It purposely does not have a constitution so as to allow very loose, non-rigid associations, within which each organization and church group can maintain their own identity. The Western Cape Alliance for Life (WCAL) is the provincial arm of NAL.

Purpose of the Conferences
This purpose of the conference is for pro-lifers to share ideas and experiences and to strategise together for the year that lies ahead. This is followed by the National March for Life/Life Chain the next day, Sunday 6October, 14:00 -16:00. For more information about the Life Chain,
