ABOUT 200 UK Fijian Methodist Fellowship members have agreed to the $F92,770 (£30,000) church budget next year.

The highlight of the budget includes (F$18, 554) £6000 for Reverend Jimione Kaci's trip to Fiji to attend the annual Methodist Church conference in August.

The church's head steward of the UK and Northern Ireland, Joseva Draunidalo, announced they would not be providing anymore monetary assistance to the church in Fiji.

Mr Draunidalo said for the first time they would allocate a budget of F$6184 (£2000) for the youths.

He said the budget plan also featured looking into vehicle servicing, insurance and tax for chaplain Mr Kaci.

Mr Draunidalo said allocations had also been made for the church's evangelisation work.

"Levies collected from the three divisions, including Northern Ireland, totalled $F90,049 (£29,120)," he said.

"The members pay $F30 (£10) every year and there are more than 200 families in the church."
