The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
opens new building


LDS members gather after services Sunday


Members, friends and missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints of the Burns Creek Branch met in their new building on Sunday.  The new meeting house is located on King George highway adjacent to Ocean Marine.  Members have been meeting at Kola Ridge since October and are excited to be able to meet in their own neighborhood again.  Branch President, Dickson Koke, commented, “this new building provides us with a large chapel and many classrooms.  It is so convenient for those who attend.  Most can now just walk to meetings without riding the bus.”


This new building serves members of the Church who live between Vura road on the west and Tenaru on the east.  Worship services begin each Sunday at 10am.  Visitors are always invited and welcome.


The Burns Creek Branch is part of the Honiara Solomon District of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Other congregations meet in White River, Honiara, Fauabu Malaita, and Gizo.  Membership in the Church is growing in the Solomon Islands as people discover this Christian religion which is based on modern day apostles, prophets and the teachings of Jesus Christ.  Members believe the resurrected Savior Jesus Christ leads and directs his church in these modern times through revelation.
