Securing the Future of the Church in PNG

There is an urgent need for strong leadership throughout the parishes of the Anglican Church of Papua New Guinea. Building on ABM’s previous work in PNG and support of Newton College, this is a holistic project aiming to improve learning and living conditions.

Funding will contribute to Curriculum Development replacing the 1980’s curriculum currently in use, teacher development and site maintenance. Supplies like books, water tanks and Master’s Degrees for Lecturers are all required.

Both learned invaluable skills, knowledge, and prayer habits to sustain them for their work in furthering the gospel of Christ amongst the people of Sasembata. Read more.
