St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, Suva

St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, Suva (must see)

Surrounded by a white picket fence, St. Andrews Presbyterian Church is one of the oldest wooden buildings in Fiji. On September 29, 1883, the Fiji Times (known then as the Suva Times) ran a story announcing the official opening of the church for public worship. Once associated primarily with the colonial settler families, it slowly absorbed a wider community including students from the Pacific Theological College and the University of the South Pacific. Today, it features a Facebook page and still offers regular services led by Rev. Dr. Bruce Yeates.

The St. Andrews Presbyterian Church is a folk Gothic Revival building with a front-facing gable form and two bays on either side. The symmetrical windows are pointed-arch shaped. The pair closest to the central entry is larger and more vertical, with original stain glass on one of the windows. The main entry is roofed with a gable-facing façade and wood-framed double doors.

Suva can lay certain claim to being the largest and perhaps the most livable city in the South Pacific outside New Zealand or Australia. The capital of Fiji since 1883, it is set on 15 sq km of peninsula adjacent to one of the finest naturally protected harbors in the South Seas, and is a home for about 330,000 residents (including suburbs and neighboring communities).
