DURBAN, South Africa - A massive fire destroyed the Durban Christian Centre's 5,500-capacity Jesus Dome auditorium in the city's Mayville neighborhood on the night of June 8. No one was injured in the blaze, but the structure, first dedicated in 1999, was a total loss. Three days later, the sky above the destroyed church's parking lot lit up with beams from 12 Clay Paky Mythos fixtures, all pointed towards a star, as the congregation met together for a service. LD Michael Broderick and Brandon Bunyan of Black Coffee donated the idea and the use of the gear. Going forward, the megachurch will hold services using a large tent until the Jesus Dome can be rebuilt.
