THE Methodist Church in Fiji has had a great financial year with levies collected reaching their 100 per cent mark annually.

Methodist Church secretary for communication and overseas mission Reverend James Bhagwan said the Methodist Church had been able to collect $1million since June this year, with the church entering its new financial year.

Mr Bhagwan said the money or levies collected from church members annually were always used in the same place every year in the church.

"All our departments in the church are funded by the levies collected and also the running of the institutions of the church," he said.

"We have our standard expenditures but most of the money collected goes to the Davuilevu Theological College for our training and the rest is spread amongst various departments based on their budget."

He said the Methodist Church's financial year was from June to May, so the new budget is done next year in June.

"We have been enjoying 99 per cent and 100 per cent on levies coming in every year because the members are always committed in giving their levies annually," he said.

"$700,000 was collected just in terms of the fundraising that was done during the golden jubilee celebration, with half of the money coming from guests and the other half was part of the scholarship fundraising done."
