The Bose Ko Viti for the Methodist Church in Fiji has been called off because of the unforeseen crisis brought by the COVID-19 and Tropical Cyclone Harold.
This has been confirmed by the Church President Reverend Dr. Epineri Vakadewavosa who says that the decision was made based on the health restrictions imposed by government and because people around the country, including their church members had lost their livelihoods and are struggling.
Reverend Vakadewavosa says some of their members are struggling with the collapse of the tourism industry and other sectors and those who were affected by TC Harold are still rebuilding.
Reverend Vakadewavosa says it is their moral duty to ensure they don’t burden the church members more by congregating in large numbers.
He says money raised during the Bose Ko Viti funds some of the church’s projects.
Reverend Vakadewavosa says in the absence of a conference, the executive decision is left to their Standing Committee, which can’t meet under the restrictive climate under COVID-19.
He says further decisions of the church would follow the approved channels but for now the Bose Ko Viti would not be held for the sake of the people.
