Iban Methodist Church building new church in Sibujaya 詩巫再也建伊班教堂

the Iban Methodist Church is given a piece of land, just beside Tien Hua Primary School in Sibujaya, for the construction of a Rm1.5 million church building, which can accommodate 500 congregation, once completed in 2 years time.
Bishop of the Methodist Church of Malaysia, Rev. Ong Hwai Teck officiated at the earth breaking ceremony yesterday morning.
Sibujaya is a fast growing satellite town of Sibu, with commercial and residential building coming up rapidly in recent years. many Iban people lives here, making it an important centre for Iban and indigenous cultures development.

耗資150萬令吉,可以容納約500人使用的伊班衛理公會教堂,將在兩年內在詩巫再也被建造起來.
這間座落天化小學旁,佔地一依甲的教堂,於昨天由馬來西亞衛理公會會督王懷德牧師主持動土儀式.
詩巫再也是一個人口逐漸增加的新興衛星鎮兼住宅區.居民主要以伊班人為主,馬來人和華人亦滲雜其間.
除了伊班衛理教會,衛理公會華人議會亦獲得土地供建造教堂用途.天主教亦已展開教堂的建造籌備工作.
