The combined prayer service held annually before the start of the cyclone season in the Cook Islands will take place at the National Auditorium on October 28.

 

The service is organised by the Religious Advisory Service, and the theme this year will be John chapter 16, verse 33: “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace”. Starting at 5.45pm, the service will include a video and musical prelude, followed by a welcome from MC Angaroa Williams.

Each of the churches taking part will give a 10-minute presentation and there will be items from the Cook Islands Christian Church, the Catholic, Seventh Day Adventist, Apostolic and Assembly of God churches.

An RAC spokesman said the service would be free to the general public.

“So come and join us in giving thanks to the Lord for his many blessings upon us throughout this year, and to ask for His continued guidance and protection during this upcoming 2018/19 cyclone season.” 

There were no cyclones in the Cook Islands last year, a fact that was marked by a joyous end of season service earlier this year.
