The service comes from Suriname and the theme is:
“All God’s Creation is very Good"

 

The Republic of Suriname lies in the North Eastern part of South America. Suriname is named after the Surinen tribe, one of the indigenous peoples of the land. Suriname is part of the Guianas, an ecological region within the Amazon. The word Guiana comes from a Kaliña word, meaning “land of many waters”. Suriname has many rivers and creeks. Over 90% of the country is covered by pristine tropical rainforest with a high biodiversity.

 

 

A Special service in which Christians of all denominations come together to share and to reflect in company with millions around the world.
