Padre tends to flock

THERE is a need for a full-time Methodist Church minister to look after the congregation in the UK and Northern Ireland.

This was highlighted by the UK Fijian Methodist Fellowship chaplain Reverend Jimione Kaci at their annual conference last night that this is his second year serving the church's Fijian British Army families.

"In regards to the financial obligations of looking after the minister, it is the responsibility of the church members," Mr Kaci said.

"That includes housing the minister and his family and meeting their financial obligations."

Mr Kaci said he was also responsible for looking after the Derby Circuit English members.

He said the Fijian members of the congregation looked after his housing and other miscellaneous expenses.

"At the moment, one minister is enough to look after the congregation in the UK and Northern Ireland.

"Most of the soldiers are mobile and move around the camps in the UK but the main thing is that they are growing spiritually and doing the work of the church and Lord."

Mr Kaci said most church leaders had a strong foundation of church principles which were being put into practise.
