White River South Sea Evangelical Church (SSEC) has cancelled all its programmes for today, assistant pastor Joseph Olofisau said.
The church was flooded when the Whiter River stream over-flowed its banks, inundating homes, clinic, police station and community halls.
Pastor Olofisau said their church building is now filled up with mud.
“We are yet to clean up because the water supply is yet to be restored into our area,” he said.
“As soon as water is restored, we will begin the onerous task of removing the mud and cleaning up the church,” he said.
“Our programmes will resume after we clean up the church.
“For now, our congregation members can go to our sister churches in town to pray and worship,” he said.
