THE year 2014 marks a special occasion for all Methodists in Fiji and Rotuma because they will celebrate their 50th Golden anniversary.

For the Lami division, the celebration is all about relating the meaning of the anniversary through choir competitions and displaying of items.

Reverend Ratu Joji Natuivau said the two circuits in the Lami division — Lami and Qauia — comprised a total of 15 small churches that would participate in the choir competition. The choir competition held last Friday night was for groups within the 15 churches in the Lami and Qauia circuit.

These groups were categorised under the women, men, youth, and the Sunday school division.

He said there were prizes provided and certificates of participation for the best choir, and for those who were able to relate their songs to the celebration of the anniversary.

The choir competition featured the Nasevou, Nakurukuru, Nakula, Valenicina, Waigasa, Naisogowaluvu, Matanisivaro, Waisere and Saioni churches of the Lami circuit; and Orepi, Ararata, Moraia, Sinai, Kirisini and Eremoni of the Qauia circuit. The overall anniversary celebration will be held next month.
