The Methodist Church members have agreed to pay a levy of $15 annually.

This was confirmed to FijiLive by the Church general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra.

Rev Nawadra said this was agreed by all members on the final day of their annual conference on Friday.

“The $15 payment will be effective from April next year as each member will have to give this as their annual levy,” he said.

The church first proposed for a $10 levy for each member; however it was slashed as majority stood up for $15 per member.

Inorder to meet the Church's growing expenses, an increase members’ levy was proposed.

In an earlier interview with FijiLive, 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.

The money raised through levy collection will be used to pay bills and meet other expenditures.
