Macau United Christian Carnival and Prayer Service

On Saturday 18 January 2002, the standards of Jesus Christ will be raised at
Leao Senado Square in Macau, Hong Kong. It is the first United Christian
Carnival in Macau and will take place from 12 noon to 5:30pm, followed by a
prayer service in St Domingo's Church.

The event is the culmination of more than nine months of collaboration of
twelve Christian communities in Macau, among which are the Roman Catholics,
Methodists, Christ Church of China, YMCA, Lutherans, Macau Baptist Church
and School, Southern Baptist Mission, Cocordia School for Special Education,
the Anglicans, and independent Christian organisations from the Assembly of
God and congregational traditions.

The coming Carnival is the first time when Macau Christians from Protestant
and Roman Catholic traditions join together in public to confess their
common heritage in Jesus Christ. The first Macau Church Directory, a
catalogue of all churches, Christian schools and social service centres will
be distributed free to the public.

Michael Poon, Convenor of the Carnival, said, "I ask you to stand together
with us in prayer. I also ask you to give thanks for those who are willing
to participate in the event and stand openly together on the same platform."

The ACNSlist is published by the Anglican Communion Office, London.
