Prayer service brings Tongans in UK together

The Tongan families in England gathered yesterday in a prayer service at the High Wycombe Methodist church.

It was attended by the Tongan High Commissioner to UK Hon Fane Tupou Vava’u and her husband Hon Kiu Tu’ivakanō.

The service included the annual ‘Faka-Sepitema’ roll call which was led by the High Commissioner.

A spokesperson said this was the 10th anniversary of the Tongan church community at the Rutland Avenue which was led by Rev Singa Vunipola.

The service was described as warm and emotional.

About 60 Tongan families joined the community.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
