When the church started using the website and the zoom platform as their new church in the clouds (fale lotu he ope) the comment was made by the leading minister that this new church in the clouds is symbolic of the reality that it brings us a little closer to God in the heavens. Wile the comment was made in jest, there is much evidence to suggest that there is some truth and merit behind the transition. After all, the church is a relative late comer in this regard and education (University of the South Pacific), retail and communication have made this same transition without the prompt of a pandemic.
