President Jioji Konrote has called for the World Council of Churches to support Fiji’s Presidency of COP 23.

Konrote made the request during a courtesy call by the World Council of Churches General Secretary Reverend Dr. Olav Tveit.

Discussions that were held included the integral role of spirituality in Fiji and the Pacific and how an authentic Fijian and Pacific voice on climate change would need to articulate this.

Reverend Tveit shared with the President how the World Council of Churches, in particular the churches of the Pacific have been at the forefront of Climate Change and Climate Justice advocacy for the last three decades.

The General Secretary also met with the head of Fiji's COP23 Secretariat, John Conner to discuss more practical aspects of the World Council of Churches, Pacific and Fijian churches contribution to Bonn and beyond.

Meanwhile the Methodist Church of Fiji Festival of Praise is currently underway at Furnival Park, Toorak where thousands of people from various choir groups are taking part in the weeklong praise giving event.

They are also having a soli or fundraising activity to coincide with this event.

The Methodist Church conference will start next Monday.
