We loved the camaraderie with other Christian brothers & sisters in another part of the world. The music was incredible -- some of it acapella!

Visited Cook Islands Christian Church on a Sunday which happened to be a special service to commemorate service organisations (Girl Guides, Scouts, Boys Brigade), all the groups marched in behind their flags, and some of the members took part in the service. The service was mostly in CI Maori, but some parts in English. They were very welcoming to visitors.... More

My sister and I had heard about the beautiful service at the CICC and as we were there on a Sunday, we did not want to miss it. We caught the Clockwise Bus and were there just as the service started at 10 am. The gorgeous white stucco church was filled to the brim. The minister acknowledged our presence and... More
