Last Sunday, the Church organized a new district in Vanuatu.
The Tanna Vanuatu District was organized from a division of the Port Vila Vanuatu District and includes the following five branches: The Greenhill, Greenpoint, Saetsiwi, White Sands, and Whitegrass Branches. Three member groups also appear to operate within the district in Lapangtawa, Lemdewakel, and Port Resolution. The Church has experienced rapid growth on Tanna within the past decade and today some of the branches have as many as 300 members attending church.
There are now four districts on Vanuatu. One district (Port Vila) appears close to becoming a stake, whereas one district (Luganville) appears close to splitting to create a new district on Ambae Island.
