THE Methodist Church in Fiji's 56 divisions will begin their annual meeting and divisional-level jubilee celebration this week.

Methodist Church in Fiji communication secretary Reverend James Bhagwan said the celebration of the Methodist Church golden jubilee started this week at grassroots level until the national level celebration in August.

Mr Bhagwan said every year, according to the church constitution, representatives from the various circuits in a division gather to discuss the work within that division.

He said the meeting was usually done during the first term school holidays.

"They deliberate on all issues and make resolutions about the work and church life in their division and also recommendation to the annual conference, which is the highest decision-making body in the church," Mr Bhagwan said.

He said representatives from all the divisions, lay people as well as ordained ministers and deaconesses attended the annual conference to consider the national-level work of the church and the recommendations that had come from the 56 divisional annual meetings.
