A Guangdong church hosted a celebration and a retreat to commemorate the 100th anniversary of its founding.
On October 24, Guangxiao Church in Guangzhou held three Sunday services in the morning, noon and evening, with titles of "Guangxiao Church Walks with Light for a Hundred Years", "Building a Church in Unity in the Holy Spirit", and "What Should I Do for You?"
Believers were encouraged to walk in the "Light" (or "Guang" in Chinese), to trust and obey, to cooperate to serve with one heart, and to undertake a mission of building a united and glorious church.
Joint with the choirs from Zion Church, Fangcun Church and the Church of Our Savior, choirs and worship teams of the church gave performances to express gratitude and praise to the Lord.
The celebration coincided with the construction of Panyu Church in Guangzhou, for which commemorative pots were presented to donators.
Guangxiao Christian Church, one of Guangzhou's largest churches, is located in the heart of downtown. The church is a combination of Western and Chinese architectures which employed Italian design in decor. Covering a total area of 1,470 square meters in a five-story design, the building is 26.7 meters high, 35 meters long and 23 meters wide.
