Atonement 2012

The atonement ceremony was held at Praise City International on the 24th September 2012. It was an awesome ceremony where they were joined by members of the Messianic Community who blew the shofar at several intervals, bringing a sense of holiness to the proceedings. This atonement ceremony represents for the church the entering of a new spiritual year which is preceeded by ten days of fasting and reflection.

The ceremony was presided over by Bishop Dave Alleyne, the president and Bishop of Praise City International. He blessed the elements (earth, water, fire, air), the different races, fathers, mothers, teenagers and children. The proceedings was concluded with the drinking of oil and wine and the eating of apples and honey, to signify the entrance of a prosperous year.
