The Methodist Church in Fiji president Reverend Tevita Banivanua has been elected new president of the Fiji Council of Churches.

Reverend Banivanua, who was elected earlier this week, replaces Manumalo Tuinanumea of the Coptic Orthodox Church in Fiji.

Church secretary for communication Reverend James Bhagwan said the Standing Committee of the Methodist Church in Fiji was informed of the election yesterday.

Reverend Banivanua has a long history of working within the local, regional and global ecumenical movement to bring visible unity among the diverse Christian community.

The Fiji Council of Churches is a fellowship of churches which confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the scriptures and therefore seek to fulfil together their common calling to the glory of God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Founded in 1963, members of the council include the Anglican Diocese of Polynesia, Fiji Baptist Convention, Congregational Christian Church, Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma, Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Suva, the Salvation Army, St Andrews Presbyterian Church, St Mark Coptic Orthodox Church and Fiji Community Churches of Christ.
