A TOTAL of $71,646.65 was raised by the Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma in the past two days of its golden jubilee celebrations at the Furnival Park, Toorak, in Suva.

These were the donations from various circuits, divisions and confederacies.

Church general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said the celebration had been encouraging as church members flocked in numbers into the Capital City to be part of the event.

"The celebration is touching. We started it with the reconciliation on Monday and then the three confederacies also came in with their presentations," Mr Nawadra said.

"This is an emotional and moving occasion as well for us the church members. We look forward to the remaining events in these last two days before the meeting next week."

Yesterday witnessed gift presentation and thanksgiving day, and various circuits and division took part in the choir singing and soli.

He said the event was to thank the Lord for bringing the church through in the past 50 years.

The church had targeted to receive the donations of $5000 from big circuits and $3000 from smaller circuits from the 330 circuits around the country.
