CANE GARDEN BAY, Tortola, VI – The Cane Garden Bay Baptist Church (CGBBC) will, on Sunday, August 26, 2018, rededicate its ‘sanctuary’ which was devastated a year ago, by two Category-5 hurricanes—Irma and Maria.

The ceremony is set to coincide with culmination of the Virgin Islands’ (VI), 2018 Heritage Month observances, with the annual Family and Friends Day.

Senior Pastor the CGBBC, Dr Melvin A. Turnbull, in a public statement on Thursday, August 23, 2018, announced the rededication ceremony saying, “its been a long and hard journey with disappointments, delays and even doubts, but through it all, God has been faithful, and people near and far have been more than helpful.”

The renovated CCBBC ‘sanctuary’ will see the rededication programme featuring a ribbon cutting ritual and prayer Ceremony at 10:00 AM, followed by the celebratory service at 10:30 PM.

    That locked back room still full up of relief supplies? Too bad they weren’t distributed to ALL residents. That’s ok, the good Lord will sort that all out when the time comes.
