Our Ministry Team
Our Minister is Rev Falkland Liuvaie
I did my theological training at Knox Theological College in Dunedin from 1992-94 and graduated with a Bachelor of Theology degree and a Diploma for Ministry. I was ordained as a minister of Word and Sacrament at the Ekalesia Kerisiano Alofi in 1996 and inducted as minister of Makefu on the 12 of January 1997. We completed our ministry in Makefu in 2007 and moved to Wellington where we began our ministry with our Niue people from 2008. I was inducted as Parish minister at the former St Giles Church in 2012 until now. I also served two years as a voluntary chaplaincy assistant from 2009-11.
