The 3-day Methodist Church of Fiji and Rotuma annual conference will begin next Wednesday at the Suva Centenary Church.

Deputy secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said the election of office bearers and their submission to the Constitution Commission are among issues that will be discussed during the meeting.

He also confirmed receiving 300 applicants for the presidential post.

“All 300 applicants are senior ordained padres more than 10 years in the service,” Nawadra said.

The church will also be naming a new secretary, treasurer among others.

Nawadra said that they will also formalise the framework of their submission to the Constitution Commission which will be made at the completion of the conference.

“Finance and also other social obligations will also be discussed.”

He also confirmed being advised to discuss only church issues which will be monitored by members of the Fiji Police Force who will also sit in at the meeting.

In granting the approval in June, 2012, Police Commissioner Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua highlighted that the Methodist Church must exclude those activities that will financially burden its members such as the bazaar and choir competition.

The Fiji Police Force in a statement said it fully recognises the importance of the meetings and trusts that the opportunity will be used to bring positive changes.
