Methodist Church continues with reforms

THE Methodist Church will continue with the reforms initiated under the leadership of the late church president Reverend Dr Tuikilakila Waqairatu.

Church general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said these reforms included the new connexional plan and review of the church's constitution.

Mr Nawadra said the church's decision-making structure was such that the reform process was approved by the 2013 annual conference and in between conferences.

He said the standing committee was the executive decision-making body of the church.

"The work must and will go on," Mr Nawadra said.

"We continue to mourn the passing of our dear brother in Christ, our late president.

"At the same time we have work to do and must focus on the task at hand.

"All our departments are in the process of aligning their activities with the connexional plan and the 12 pillars of the church."

Mr Nawadra said interim church president Reverend Laisiasa Ratabaca had been briefed on the progress of the reforms.

"The interim president is aware of the work currently being done and what more needs to be done.

"He has asked us to continue working on these reforms.

"He will be busy over the next few months, with the induction of a number of new divisional superintendents who have taken up appointments this year around the country."

A press statement confirmed that three of the church's 56 divisions â€" Suva, Tavua and Macuata â€" are already a part of a pilot project to implement the plan.
