Hundreds of worshipers turned up at Lautoka’s Churchill Park on New Year’s Eve to welcome 2019 with prayer and songs of praise.

The combined church service, which was organised by the Lautoka City Coun­cil, attracted families from around Lau­toka to the venue.

New Methodist Church Pastor, Akuila Driso said the presence of members of different denominations at the event had brought about a sense of unity.

“I believe this brings in a sense of unity that we all can work together because there is only one enemy that we have to fight against,” Pastor Driso said.

“We have to work together and try as much as we can to bring back a lot of souls to the Kingdom of God

“And I believe it creates this bond be­cause we have youths, a group for men and women.”

In welcoming the New Year he said eve­ryone needed prosperity.

“With the New Year we all need pros­perity and according to the Word of God, when there is unity, God will command blessings and blessings will come in any form,” he said.

The various churches that took part in the combined thanksgiving service were the New Methodist Church, Assemblies of God and the Christian Mission Fellow­ship.
