It took a series of tremors earlier this year to unite several different Christian denominations in Kadavu.

Superintendent of the Nakasaleka Methodist circuit Reverend Samuela Naveiyalayalati believed the tremors, recorded in May, were a divine sign to unite and work with fellow Christians in the vanua.

The district of Nakasaleka, with six different Christian denominations, led the way, with churches uniting to rebuild the Methodist Church, and homes that suffered cracks to their structures.
Reverend Naveiyalayalati said the people of Nakasaleka, from all denominations, came to help off-load hardware from the ship to help build their new church,” he said.

The Nakasaleka Methodist Church circuit in Kadavu awaits the refurbishment of their new church before celebrating the church’s 100 anniversary.

“The idea of having a new church was first inspired by the late Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu and his family,” he said.

“It was also through fasting and praying that we received God’s blessing,” he said.
