Faith based communities to pray for COP23
November 2, 2017 5:32 pm
The Methodist Church says as a member of the World Council of Churches, they will continue to call on nations around the globe, to support Fiji’s COP23 Presidency.
General Secretary, Reverend Dr Epineri Vakadewavosa says Fiji amplifies the voices of Pacific vulnerable small island states and coastal cities.
Vakadewavosa is also calling on people of various local faith based communities and the Pacific to endorse the COP23 Multifaith Charter, prepared by different denominations, in partnership with the COP23 Presidency Secretariat.
The church also reaffirmed their support for the Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama as Fiji takes up the role of presidency of COP23.
This was affirmed at the annual Methodist Church Conference in August, this year.
Bainimarama was invited to address delegates on COP23 as part of the church’s ongoing work on stewardship of creation.
The COP23 starts next Monday in Bonn, Germany.
