GOVERNMENT through the Ministry of Home Affairs says it would strengthen and maintain its support with the Churches and other stakeholders.
The Ministry’s Permanent Secretary George Palua highlighted this during the launching of the Bible week at Holy Cross Cathedral yesterday.
The event kicked off with a parade which ended up at Holy Cross Cathedral for a service.
He said, the Ministry wishes to uphold the value of cordial relationship with the non-government organisations, Churches, and all civil societies that contribute to the development of Solomon Islands.
He urged the Christian communities to uphold the basic Christian values in their homes.
“These Christian values are of great importance to us because they keep unity, love and stability in our society.”
He said, the government don’t want such mission to stop but to continue.
The Bible week program is an annual event around the region.
The Solomon Islands churches Association (SICA) along with the support of Bible Society of the South Pacific are hosting the event this year in Honiara for the first time after the ethnic tension.
This week a number of activities will be held at Ar Gallery.
The public is being invited to visit the showground.
