Supporters’ Gathering

In common with many organisations, we are holding our events and meetings online. Our annual Supporters’ Gathering is no exception, an opportunity we hope to use to feature material direct from Papua New Guinea, including updates on our recent grants to the Anglican Church.

Whilst we organise the format and confirm speakers, we ask you to please hold the date: 16th September at 7pm (PNG’s Independence Day).

Archive Films

We’re delighted to post the first of a number of archive films from Papua New Guinea. Our first video is a fascinating treasure – archive home video from the Papua New Guinea highlands in the 1960’s, filmed and narrated by Father Peter Robin.

Peter went to PNG as a missionary in 1954, serving in the western highlands under Bishop David Hand who recruited him. At that the time the mission organisation was New Guinea Mission, and missionaries worked alongside recruits from other Anglican missions such as ABM. After working in a number of mission stations he was posted to Simbai in 1958, staying for many years. There he met Olive, who went to PNG as a missionary nurse in 1956. Peter and Olive went on to serve as missionaries at Koinambe in 1966, where they build their home the mission house and the airstrip in 1966. Together they helped establish the Anglican Health Centre in Koinambe, and Peter become Anglican Chaplain at Balob College, Lae. They had three children who were all born and lived in PNG until the family left in 1974.
