ABOUT 10,000 people are expected to attend the Methodist Church's 50th anniversary in Suva next month.

Celebrations to mark the event is expected to last a whole week.

Church communications secretary Reverend James Bhagwan said the launch would be held at the Vodafone Arena followed by a church service that would reflect the diversity of the Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma.

He said a reconciliation service would be organised by the worship and reconciliation sub-committee.

"The message is of celebration, thanksgiving and following the theme of jubilee — reconciliation and renewal," Mr Bhagwan said.

Mr Bhagwan said a lot of activities would be held during the one week celebrations.

Chiefs from the three confederacies would be invited to the celebrations, he said.

"We will have an Agape Feast at the National Gymnasium in which we will invite a wide section of the community outside of the Methodist Church in Fiji to have a fellowship meal with us.

"Those invited are then representing the whole country. The feast is to be a level playing field where the president may be seated next to a homeless person, all participants are accorded the same courtesies and eat the same food."
