More than 3500 Jehovah’s Witnesses will converge on Te Rauparaha Arena this Friday for a convention.
The three-day event, which is open to the public, is one of six to be held around New Zealand in January. The theme is ‘‘Safeguard Your Heart’’ and will involve Bible readings, presentations, a play and a baptism.
Spokesman Rick Delmarter says the programme will emphasise how protecting the figurative heart will enhance one’s spiritual well-being, family life and personal happiness.
It begins on Friday at 9.20am and there is no admission fee.
