One of the things on my bucket list was listening to Polynesian singing in church, and I wasn’t disappointed. The ladies all wear lacy white dresses with shady straw hats, and the men formal suits. And the singing, in harmony, was angelic.

Protestantism is much more common in Tahiti than Catholicism, unusually for a French-speaking location, thanks to the London Missionary Society in the late 18th century. Thuis is an atractive location in an unattractive town: peaceful and conducive to worship.

Very descriptive of the time that it was built and the lifestyle that governed the way of life at the time. Visiting the temple does allow for a more complete feeling of a holiday in a different place.

The stained glass windows and ornate woodwork were reason enough to visit this church. Not to mention the beautiful parishioners dressed in white with elegant hats and bright welcoming smiles. Truly a blessed place of celebration steeped in years of traditions.

We walked there Sunday morning from Hotel Tiare. Beautiful. We speak only English, service was either in Tahitian and/or French. Think Tahitian. Recognized some songs (sang beautifully acapella through audience). Even participated in the communion part. Beautiful park across road afterwards, then nice walk along...More
