BUKIT JALIL: Christians joined hands to celebrate the joyous occasion of Easter Sunday in a combined worship service organised by the Calvary Church of Kuala Lumpur at Stadium Putra here yesterday.
The church’s senior pastor, Datuk Dr Prince Guneratnam, presided over a crowd of over 4,000 at the indoor stadium, in front of a translucent backdrop featuring a huge cross outlined in red.
In his remarks, Dr Guneratnam warmly welcomed both Christians and non-Christians to the service and urged worshippers to play a more active role.
The combined service from 10am to almost 1pm was being held by the church for the 21st successive year.
As before, the church choir and stage team sang and performed dances.
Dr Gunaretnam’s sermon in English was also translated into Chinese so that all at the event could hear his message for peace.
Besides parishioners from the main Calvary Church in Bukit Damansara, those from Calvary’s satellite churches in Damansara Perdana, Jalan Ampang and Cheras also attended the service.
Funds were collected for the proposed Calvary Convention Centre estimated to cost RM50mil.
Held concurrently with the service was a special Easter Adventure & Discovery Programme for children aged between four and nine.
