Methodist Church General Secretary Rev. Dr Epineri Vakadewavosa says the this is part of the new direction the church is taking.
“Our church relationship is very important in terms of church and state as we go into the new direction the next 50 years .Our working together with the current regime whatever regime that will lead this country we will work closely together for the benefit of us all.”
The church also sees the need to place emphasis on the area of education.
Vakadewavosa also confirmed the Navuso Agriculture School in Nausori will be phased out from next year.
“There will be no form three next year until 2017 when there will be no more high school and our agricultural college will eventually take over and move forward into process.”
Most of land owned by the church remains undeveloped and the church has plans to develop the land for the future.
