The Methodist Church of Fiji and Rotuma continues to support the Government’s decision to prohibit unvaccinated worshippers from entering the church premises.

The message was reiterated by the church in a circular yesterday.

Church President Ili Vunisuwai has urged members to adhere to the law and respect the decision not to allow participation by un­vaccinated members in church properties.

The circular stated that there was confusion among church members on whether unvacci­nated worshippers could enter the churches or not.

It was clarified that the church leadership met with the Perma­nent Secretary for Defence Mana­sa Lesuma, Permanent Secretary for Health and Medical Services Dr James Fong and Fiji Police Force Chaplain SP Reverend Wai­sale Tikowale.

It was confirmed at the meeting that the law on restricting un­vaccinated worshippers had not changed regardless of the lifting of restrictions to full capacity at­tendance and optional wearing of masks.
