Hundreds attended the site’s breaking ground ceremony

By Jasmine Netzler-Iose APIA, Samoa (Samoa Observer, July 10, 2011) - A ceremony to break the ground at the site where the Worship Centre Church will build a multi-million-tala headquarter took place yesterday at Sogi.

Hundreds of members of the church attended the event that attracted followers from Australia, New Zealand and Cabinet Ministers.

Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi delivered the keynote address.

Head and founder of the church, Pastor Viliamu Mafo’e said he hopes the church will bring many people to Samoa to witness God’s glorious works.

Secretary General, Pastor Moala Siliva Moala said the first phase of the project will be funded with the assistance from David Broughton, President and leader of Merroo Worship Centre and Christian Missionary in Australia.

"The first phase will cost more than one million tala," said Pastor Moala. "Building materials will be shipped over from Australia."

These will include the steel frame and other materials needed for the first phase of the building.

Pastor Moala said the church has planned the project for a long time. However due to matters that had to be considered it was put on hold until now.
