A breakaway group from Fiji's Methodist Church, have formed their own church.
Appropriately called the New Methodist Church, it was founded by former Air Pacific employee, Atu Vulaono. He is the brother of Police Commissioner, Esala Teleni.
Sources say Teleni is a staunch and leading member of the Church and gives regular sermons.
Since last December, Teleni has ordered non-Christian police men and police women to attend church with their families. A month ago, the Crusade was held at Nasova grounds for residents of the Nasova Police Barracks. It's said families were told to attend the Crusade for more than three hours.
Sources also say last Friday, the New Methodist Church, which is based in Nasese, was filled with non-Christian police officers. At the service, Teleni moved around preaching and blessing officers, many of them Indians. Sources who were present, say he touched their foreheads with such force, they nearly lost their balance.
Coupfourpointfive has been told there are fears that non-Christians in the police force, will have to convert to Christianity, in order to keep their jobs.
