March of witness through city

Dawn Gibson
Sunday, April 20, 2014

WITH the aim of encouraging harmony and initiating a forgiving atmosphere among all Christians in Fiji on one of the most important days in the Christian calendar, the Methodist Church is hosting a concert and a march through Suva this afternoon.

The concert, according to Fiji Council of Churches interim general secretary Reverend James Bhagwan, will feature songs, skits, drama performances, dances and other activities aimed at promoting harmony among Christian youth.

"And the concert will also urge them to reconcile with each other, their families and communities, as well as those of different communities," Mr Bhagwan said in a statement.

All Christian communities and interested members of the public are being encouraged to join the church this afternoon to be part of its March of Witness, which begins at 4pm.

The march will be from the Suva Flea Market to Ratu Sukuna Park, where about 15 church communities will be taking part in the organised concert.

"The Fiji Council of Churches supports this march as many of the young people attending the march will no doubt be part of our program also."

While the concert begins at 2pm and runs all afternoon until about 8.30pm, the march begins at 4pm and marchers can then make their way to the park to enjoy the concert.

Meanwhile, Wesley and Dudley churches in Suva are scheduled to hold a combined sunrise Holy Communion Service at 5.30am at the Suva Peace Garden in commemoration of today, Easter Sunday.
