Divisional superintendents and chief stewards of the Methodist Churches in Fiji will take back to their divisions and circuits a proposal to introduce musical instruments in church services.
This was one of the proposals discussed during the third day of a week-long workshop to prepare for the church’s upcoming golden jubilee celebration at the Centenary Church in Suva yesterday.
Church’s general secretary Reverend Tevita Banivanua said they proposed to introduce the use of musical instruments alongside the church’s traditional system of worship, considering the interest of the younger generation.
“The Methodist Church is renowned for its singing and worship and we have preserved that. The introduction of musical instruments doesn’t mean that we will move away from that or eliminate it,” Reverend Banivanua said.
He said the elders of the church may not accept the idea easily.
