The local Moravian churches have decided to donate funds to Trinidad in the wake of devastating floods across the Republic, instead of giving goods and services.

“As it relates to the collection for our brothers and sisters in Trinidad… the Moravian Church, we are responding through our brothers and sisters in Trinidad to some of those families and persons who were affected.

“The Barbados Conference has decided that we will respond in cash.”

Word of this came from Rev. Dr. Adrian Smith on Sunday at the Calvary Moravian Church in Roebuck Street, Bridgetown.

He explained that the decision was taken because it is thought cash would be more efficient and effective at this juncture.

“I know a notice would have gone through the Province with regards to cash or kind, however as a Conference, we find that it is far faster and better if we respond in cash.”

The collection will be taken next Sunday, November 14, 2018. It will be a walk-up offering.

The Reverend extended an invitation to persons to feel free to drop off their donations for that cause.

On Sunday, members of the Barbados Government Information Service (GIS) joined the congregation at Calvary Moravian to celebrate their 60th Anniversary of service. Senator Lucille Moe, Minister of Information, Broadcasting and Public Affairs Senator Lucille Moe was in attendance and gave brief remarks.
