Baranamba Adventist Church, a church plant of Kukum Seventh-day Adventist Church in Honiara, Solomon Islands, recently held its homecoming Sabbath celebration.
This is one of the most significant events conducted by the newly established church plant since the COVID-19 outbreak and lockdowns in Honiara early this year.
Following the Trans Pacific Union Mission theme for 2022, “I will go to my family”, the program featured a special message presented by Kukum senior pastor Johnie Tangokona with many members of the community in attendance.
“They were blessed with the friendship and love extended to them by the church members,” said Kukum church leader Hilton Dara.
Established with the help of the Kukum Honik youth and pathfinder ministry and Adventist members who live around the area, the church plant has grown significantly in membership over the past two years.
Based on a block of land owned by a Seventh-day Adventist Family, the church worship services are being held under a canvas shelter as progress on a permanent church building is still underway.
