There will also be ten workshops run by various local Malaysian Pastors and lay members. We hereby urge all participants to report themselves early for this auspicious Convention.
On May 1st (Sunday) evening at 7:00pm, we will be holding the grand finale in Sibu Town Square. We have made preparation for 12,000 to attend this function. We hereby urge our Churches in Sibu East, West Districts, and those nearby from Bintangor, Sarikei and Kapit to join the service in Sibu Town Square. The usual evening services in these churches will be shifted to Sibu Town Square. For the grand finale, there will be presentation by a joint choir of a thousand members and Holy Communion to be administered by a hundred Pastors.
This occasion is difficult to come by and could well turn out to be a once in a lifetime gathering for many of us. We therefore once again urge all Methodist Church members and other Christians to gather and pray for our nation together.
