Fodor's Expert Review Centenary Church

Nuku'alofa Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Tongans are a particularly religious people. No public activities are allowed on Sunday other than church attendance, and any check written on a Sunday is not legal tender. The Centenary Church—a large and, from the exterior, unattractive building—is the main venue for the Free Wesleyans, the state religion. Various choirs often practice here, and there are numerous rehearsals held for weddings and other events, providing an informal touch of local culture. Church services start before dawn on Sundays.
