Fiji’s Methodist Church is looking to increase members’ levy in order to meet its growing expenses.

Speaking to FijiLive church assistant general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said with the bazaar not being held this year they will need to look at other ways to raise money in order to pay for their expenses.

“Church executives from around the divisions have been contacting our main office to inform us that they are finding it hard to pay for church expenses and they are asking us to increase the levies given to the church by the members,” said Rev Nawadra.

“The money is used to pay for church bills and other things church caters for.”

The proposal is among issues to be discussed at the church’s annual general meeting later this month.
