THE Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma's Indian Division continues to grow, with 348 new members now part of the division.
The division has a total of 3106 members compared with 2758 last year.
The division looks after 30 churches around the country.
Indian Division superintendent Dr Immanuel Reuben said their small churches around the country normally had 20 to 30 members while the big churches had between 300 and 400.
He said it was great seeing the Indian Division grow annually, adding that members needed to strengthen their relationship with God more.
"As shepherds of any circuits, ministers must know what its members are doing and if members get into some sort of trouble or are facing problems, they must not be upset and offer to help them," Dr Reuben said.
"Inter-church and inter-faith relationships are an important aspect of nation building and our society is pluralistic in nature.
"Ignorance, misunderstanding or having a distorted version of your neighbours' culture and religion are obstacles to healthy nation building."
Dr Reuben said constant in-service training of its church workers was an important aspect of the ministry.
