MESSAGES of congratulation from Methodist churches around the Pacific and the world continue to pour in during the Methodist Church golden jubilee celebration in Suva this week.

The fourth day of the celebration is marked as the gifting day for the Methodist church members from all around the country.

Methodist Church of Fiji secretary for communication Reverend James Bhagwan said the various church circuits presented their contribution towards the scholarship trust fund was being set up by the church.

Mr Bhagwan said the scholarship trust fund was for lay and ordained leaders and it would help in developing the lay leader's capacity in the church.

He said the money raised during the Kubuna and Burebasaga Day at Furnival Park will be used to meet the expenses for the few days celebration.

"The church has been recognising the vanua and the role of the church in connection with the vanua by including the various confederacies Kubuna, Burebasaga and Tovata to be part of the celebration," Mr Bhagwan said.

He said apart from the gifting at the celebration, the past presidents of the church had been preaching to believers at the ground throughout the week.
