If you were in Sydney on Sunday and saw a host of golden-winged angels, costumed Biblical characters, musicians, multi-coloured flags, and hundreds of people walking with them, you were a witness to the annual Holy City March.

The event, held in March every year, is organised and attended by a mix of local churches, many from Sydney’s Asian and multicultural community, with the Christian Democratic Party’s founder Fred Nile and his wife Silvana as guests leading the parade.

An estimated 800 people from around NSW, Victoria, Queensland and New Zealand joined the march, which began at Belmore Park and finished at Martin Place.

Curious onlookers stopped to watch the peaceful parade pass by, and the event concluded with a gospel service complete with a praise and worship band and speakers.
