Fijians in Melbourne

from w
Yesterday afteroon four different Fijian church communities joined together at the Coburg Uniting Church for worship, kava, and a delicious meal. There must have been nearly three hundred people there from babies to elderlies, lots of youth, and it was a good time of great singing, including po-lotu with the triangle, articulate passionate preaching, and singing in vanua groups such as Tovata, Burebasaga and Kubuna. Then we had fellowship, crowded, in the adjoining hall and room. The hosts were the Fijian Methodist Church and the rest of us from Dandenong, Chadstone and Altona Meadows/Laverton. The men drank kava in one room and the rest of us in the hall. We had a delicious lovo meal. Here are a few photos.
