THE Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma will officially begin its golden jubilee celebrations today, marking 50 years of becoming a self-governing conference.

Thousands of Methodist Church adherents are expected to be in the Capital Citytoday to commemorate the day.

Methodist Church secretary for communication and overseas mission Reverend James Bhagwan said divisional superintendents from all 56 divisions of the church would receive special ceremonial stoles at a service at the Centenary Church at 5pm today.

With the theme Na Lako Yani Vou (The New Exodus), Mr Bhagwan is extending an invitation to members of other denominations around the country to be part of the celebrations.

"The stoles is like a scarfing they wear around their necks, the symbol of their position in the church, the symbol of their pastoral services, it will be done in the special service on Sunday afternoon," Mr Bhagwan said.

He said church members elected into new positions would also be officially installed during the service.

Activities planned for the week-long program are expected to begin on Monday at the Furnival Park in Toorak.
