The ABM Board and Supporters’ Dinner was held in Sydney on Friday 9th September, 2016. The guest speaker was the Rt Revd Tennyson Bogar, Bishop of Dogura Diocese in Papua New Guinea.
ABM has worked in partnership with the Anglican Church of PNG for many years so we are really pleased to be hosting Bishop Tennyson during his visit to Australia. We support projects in Dogura Diocese as well as helping to facilitate the Modawa Pilgrimage.
It was a pleasure to meet Bishop Tennyson and to hear him speak about his work and personal experiences.
The evening was a great success so thank you to all of our supporters who attended the event and who donated so generously.
During his time in Sydney, Bishop Tennyson met with members of the ABM Board, staff, Partnerships Committee and National Auxiliary.
Bishop Tennyson’s visit continues onto several other dioceses including Melbourne, Bendigo and Ballarat.
