Sundays in Suva

Sunday is when most Fijians go to church. The other communities also stay at home on this day. The streets of Suva are usually deserted with no shops open for business while only a few restaurants may be open. If you wish to go to church, these are a few places you can try:
  • Sacred Heart Cathedral along Pratt Street just next to the Reserve Bank Building - for Catholics;
  • Anglican Cathedral along McGregor Road - for Anglicans;
  • Centenary Church along Stewart Street or The Wesley Church at Butt Street - for Methodists;
  • Calvary Temple in Samabula opposite the Fiji Institute of Technology - for Assemblies of God members.
The city is sprinkled with some quaint little churches that belong to a number of other denominations. It is also a good day to do some window shopping around the city with it being almost empty. Take a leisurely stroll along the sea wall from the Suva wharf to the Civic Centre and have your takeaway lunch there. After lunch, go see a movie at the Village 6 cinemas. Village 6 has a good selection of the latest movies which are usually shown here before they are screened in NZ and Australia. Otherwise, just stay in, take a rest and prepare a list of what to do when Monday turns around the corner.

The Anglican Cathedral is where my parents were married, me and my brothers were christened, myself and the older of my 2 brothers were confirmed, and where we were staunch attendees of the Friday night youth club!
