Established in 1885 as a denomination independent from the Methodist Church, Free Church of Tonga remains a major religious institution in both the physical and spiritual sense. Recognized as the official state church and upheld by the presidency, the denomination has groups and members in Tonga, New Zealand, Australia, and America. The modest church building offers architectural beauty and charm, with its humble presence, architectural angles, and stained-glass windows. Sunday service here is known for its spectacular singing.

  • This is a lovely old church. Service is in Tongan but the singing is beautiful. Loved seeing everyone in there troditinal dress as well. There is nothing really to do on Sundays but go to church. 
  • This church is definitely not a highlight, but fine to walk when you walk through Nuku'alofa makes (it's within walking distance of the city centre). If you are short on time, you can the Church surely miss.

  • Spacious sound building steeped in the spirit of solemnity and faith ... Especially on Sundays when here comes all the people dressed in parade dress.
