Protestantism is much more common in Tahiti than Catholicism, unusually for a French-speaking location, thanks to the London Missionary Society in the late 18th century. Thuis is an atractive location in an unattractive town: peaceful and conducive to worship.

We tried to visit the church on 2 occasions, always finding it locked. I appeared from looking in to be modern and light. In the garden were several Tiare bushed, the national flower of French Polynesia
