Methodist Church – Head of the Vunidakua Division in Cunningham, Reverend Navolioni Adoni Vakamoce, says this is something they’ve been longing for after months of lockdown.

The Church has been conducting virtual church sessions.

He says it’s pleasing to note that members of the congregation are strictly following the COVID-safe procedures.

A COVID-safe committee was also set up to screen church members, verify their vaccination details, and ensure the careFIJI app is activated on their mobile phones.

While many churches have re-opened a few will resume their services this coming Sunday.

Wainimako Circuit Head, Reverend Manasa Levatabua, says they are still putting together COVID-safety measures which should be finalized this week.

“There is no need to rush to allow members of the church who are listening and I think this is very important – this is the new normal. Something that is new we should go slowly and take hid of the government instructions that have been laid by the Health Ministry. I think come next week, we are ready.”

He adds some church members and elders are due for their second dose over the next few days.

Police officers have also stepped in to monitor the service and ensure compliance.
