Update: 1:50PM THE funeral church service for the late Methodist Church president Rev Dr Tuikilakila Waqairatu ended minutes ago at the Centenary Church in Suva.

Waqairatu's casket has now been carried out of the church he served in for the last time.

The eight pallbearers, comprising church ministers from different divisions are dressed in white, and so are the masses who have gathered to pay this servant of God their final respect.

More than 10 buses will join the cortege to Davuilevu where he will be laid to rest.

Thousands of people are gathered in and around the church in Suva.

His body is now being lowered into the hearse, draped in masi.
