THE Methodist church conference is planning its 50th jubilee to be celebrated next year.
Church members are being made aware of the meaning of jubilee and what it means to the church.
"This week for the four days, the morning devotion is taken by the lecturers at the Davuilevu Theological College, they are focusing on the theme of jubilee," church communication secretary Reverend James Bhagwan said.
"Next year is the church's 50th jubilee so part of the preparations for that is the morning devotion that is taking place.
"To have people understand theologically what the theme jubilee means and what it can mean for the church."
Yesterday was the first day of the conference, and all leaders of the Methodist church were reconfirmed in their positions.
This means Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu was retained as the president of the church for the next year, Ratu Peni Volavola as the lay vice-president, Reverent Tevita Nawadra Banivanua as the general secretary and Reverend Epineri Vakadewavosa as the deputy general secretary.
"In our Methodist constitution, the system is that once they are elected, they can hold the position for up to three years. But annually, that position must be brought up to the conference so they have to be reappointed annually," Mr Bhagwan said.
