This church is part of the Auckland Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand. It was established when Fiji was a British Crown colony, partly in response to the needs of Scots and New Zealanders employed in the Colonial Service, teaching, trade, or the mercantile marine, and who had made Fiji their home for shorter or longer periods. Relationships with the New Zealand church were also facilitated by the fact that people in the islands of New Zealand were part of Polynesia and included a Maori population. Since World War II personnel and English-speaking teachers and students from other Reformed areas in the Pacific (Vanuatu, Tahiti, New Caledonia, Niué, Kiribati, Tuvalu, and the Solomon Islands, for example) joined in the life and worship of the church during their time in Fiji. They are now the substantial core of the church, giving it a predominantly Pacific Island flavor under the care of Islander ministers. The Kirk session is crosscultural and avails itself of the services of elders and some ordained ministers from other parts of Oceania, working closely with the Fiji Council of Churches and the Pacific Conference of Churches based in Fiji. The Pacific Theological College (PTC) also has its home in Fiji.

Note: We did not manage to contact this church. Therefore, we cannot exclude that its address has changed or that the church does not exist any more.
Whoever has information about this church may contact us. We will be happy to update our information.
