JESUS Festival organisers are calling on people from all walks of life to join them as they celebrate life through Jesus Christ with a thanksgiving service tonight at the Civic Centre.
The inaugural event, which is a collaboration of four different churches — the Worship and Ministry Centre, City Christian Church, Christian Outreach and Shilom Christian Centre as well as the House of Refuge Samabula is hoping to stage a memorable night of worship, thanks and testimonies.
"The Jesus Festival was birthed through a vision for young people. This is not just any festival or a church event but a celebration of life through our Messiah, utilising the young people and their talent for the work of God," pastor Misaele Fokalau, the event co-ordinator said.
"This isn't for just any denomination or religion but for everyone from all walks of life. We want to come together and stage a thanksgiving service; the nation has just survived Tropical Cyclone Evan and we have Christmas coming up — the birth of Christ, what better time to rejoice and be glad."
Jesus Festival will begin at 6pm with live worship, testimonies, several items including one from the Wheelbarrow Association.
Tomorrow, festival particpants will clean up the Naitasiri and Namosi Wards at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital.
