Churches mark jubilee

Felix Chaudhary
Wednesday, April 30, 2014

REPRESENTATIVES from different Christian denominations gathered at Coronation Church in Lautoka to celebrate the Methodist Church's 50th jubilee.

Head of history at Davuilevu Theological College and member of the standing committee of the Methodist Church in Fiji, Reverend Peni Cabenalevu, said it was a time of celebration and also of reflection.

"This marks 50 years of the church's independence from the body in New South Wales in Australia," he said.

"When we talk about jubilee, we are also talking about oneness and celebrating our commonality with our fellow brothers and sisters from other denominations."

Reverend John Powell of the Natokowaqa Methodist Circuit said since Coronation Church was established in 1964, there was an explosion in growth and the jubilee celebration was an acknowledgement of how the church had developed over the years.

"We now have four circuits and 17 churches in these circuits," he said.
