RAK's new Anglican church is Gulf's largest

From United Arab Emirates-

The emirate's first Anglican church and the Gulf's largest was consecrated on Friday at the new church complex in the Al Jazeera Al Hamra area.

Hundreds of people of different nationalities arrived on buses from all over the country to attend the elaborate opening ceremony.

Bishop Michael Lewis, of the Anglican Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf, officially opened St Luke's to worshippers.

He gathered worshippers around the entrance before the service and said: "Let the doors be opened."

A hymn was sung after the procession moved into the church and the congregation took their seats.
