The Methodist Church of Fiji has plans to move its head office in Suva to Davuilevu Nausori- the centre of the Methodist community.
This was revealed at the official opening of the Methodist Church Festival of Praise and Gift or Solevu at Furnival Park in Toorak yesterday.
Communications Officer Reverend James Bhagwan says all donations received this week will be given towards one of its leading projects.
“The donations given during this week whatever size they’re given are going to one of our projects one of those particular projects we’re building this year is the building of an official; resident of our president of the Methodist church of Fiji in Davuilevu. So we have our departments our head office our training centre all in the same area so the understanding is that the first step in that is to build a permanent residence.”
Reverend Bhagwan says the Methodist Church shares a long history with Davuilevu and it would like to slowly move its operations there- to help the church unite.
The festival was opened with a $203,000 donation by Methodist church members in Australia and New Zealand.
Reverend Bhagwan adds that moving to Nausori will free up the rest of the properties in Suva to develop so it eases the burden on church members by trying to raise funds from development activities.
