Christians flocked to churches to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus yesterday.

Temalesi Salusalu, a member of the Centenary Church, said Easter Sunday was a special day of bringing together family and reflecting on God’s love and blessings in one’s life.

“It’s a victorious Sunday for us Christians,” she said.

“We remember the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the power He has after rising from the dead.

“I make sure I come with my children so that they too learn about the importance of Easter, Calvary and understand the meaning of love and faith.”

Reverend Mosese Salusalu said: “With Jesus’ resurrection, it is to uplift and renew our level of faith in God and we are teaching ourselves not to doubt or fear God’s plans.

“We will live a productive life, if not we will keep living with regret, unease and no fulfillment in our spiritual life.”

Nausori

In Nausori, the Fiji Council of Churches joined with the Nausori Ecumenical Community for a march demonstrating unity among churches.

President of the Nausori Ecumenical Community, Kulinio Daveta, said: “We are all bodies of Christ and it means even thou we are all from different denominations, we all serve one God.”

Representatives from the Catholic Church, Methodist, Anglican, Pentecostal churches like the Christian Mission Fellowship, Faith Harvest Church and Central Christian Centre were part of the march.

Mr Daveta said the march was not held last year because of COVID19 but revived since its inception in 2014.

“In today’s world, we are to promote and practise more on having the spirit of unity and love despite the different backgrounds we come from,” he said.

The march began from the end of Davuilevu, Rewa bridge to the Central Christian Centre where an open air service was contacted.

Labasa

In Labasa, Victory Christian Fellowship Church held a sunrise church service.

Church Pastor, Samuel Jeet said regardless of the problems the church had faced in the past few months, they remained confident that everything would normalise soon.

The church was established back in 2003 with only two families attending church at that time.

“I wish everyone a happy Easter and hope that regardless of the hardships we all have faced we will prevail till the end,” he added.

The church currently has three branches operating from areas such as Savusavu, Raranikawai and Vuolovi in Labasa
