MEMBERS of the United Church in Honiara welcomed the arrival of New Year on Wednesday night with testimonies and songs.
The testimony night was organised for members to share their experiences of what God did for them in 2014.
Hundreds of people from United Church and other denominations participated in the programme.
Rev Willie Maezama said many people shared their personal experiences and expressed God’s faithfulness for them.
“People shared how God cares and provide for their families and blessing their spiritual lives,” Rev Maezama said.
He said a sermon of Christians’ new working relationship for this year was also highlighted during the programme.
“It’s a spiritual working relationship in the assembly that each church leader must work according,” Rev Maezama explained.
He said this year United Church aims at drawing its members closer to reach out and bring people who are spiritually dead, into God’s Kingdom.
Rev Maezama said despite many challenges they faced last year, this year is a new beginning for the church to move with the prophetic words.
He said the congregation that turned up for the programme was blessed both spiritually and physically.
Rev Maezama said the programme concluded on New Year’s Day with sport, singing and entertainment at the church compound.
