METHODIST church president Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu is challenging the congregation to be a missional church in the changing contexts of the mission field.
Church secretary for communication Reverend James Bhagwan said Mr Waqairatu delivered the message in the closing of the annual conference last week.
"This means that in the face of such changes, we must know who we really are as a church," Mr Bhagwan said.
"Mr Waqairatu said a lot of training needs to be done in, through and by the church to face these changing contexts."
The president said the journey of the church was only possible through unity.
"He reiterated that the Methodist church must be aware of its role in the 21st century. The new logo depicts that journey of the Methodist church in the 21st century and as we sail the journey of the church, we must work together.
"We may be different parts of the body of Christ but we must work together.
"He challenged both clergy and lay leaders to work to identify the gifts of the spirit that they have and to recognise and make use of the spiritual gifts that their members have.
"He called on all ministers and church workers to commit to the pastoral visitation of their members, to encourage, uplift and affirm our love and God's love."
