We indeed have a great history- a shared history, a shared mission, a shared fellowship and friendship between our two churches.

The statement was made by The National Director of UnitingWorld, Rob Floyd.

Mr Floyd was speaking at Furnival Park at Toorak, Suva, during presentations from overseas churches at the church’s Golden Jubilee Celebration yesterday.

He said Australia has fostered a special relationship with their Fijian brothers and sisters over the last 50 years.

“I can honestly say that our church in Australia is a more vibrant and dynamic community because of the many Fijians who have come from your church here and made Australia their home,” Mr Floyd said.

“This year you’re celebrating the 50th year and what we can say is that we are young and vibrant and facing new challenges.”

He said the Uniting Church would stand by their Fijian brothers and sisters.

“We from Australia will be walking with you in this journey; we will stand by you as you celebrate your 50th year,” Mr Floyd said.

Meanwhile, Ro TeimumuKepa was the chief guest on Burebasaga Day earlier yesterday.

The Methodist Church’s secretary for communications, Reverend James Bhagwan said he acknowledged the three confederacies for working with the church.

Today is designated as a gifting day for the local Methodist community to raise funds for an educational trust fund which will provide scholarships for the development of both clergy and lay leaders in the church.
