Church to Church Program

This is part of the Church to Church Program: Learn more about ABM’s Programs here.


This 12 month program helps reconnect young people in PNG to their communities. Many young people are affected by drugs and turn to anti-social activities as they suffer from boredom in remote areas. The Church tells ABM that many young people return to pre-Christian belief and practices and that sorcery and witchcraft are being used in the villages.

This project aims to deepen their Christian faith through fellowship, bible study, participation in worship and work in community. It also works to help these young people to understand that they belong to a family, church and a village.

The program combines teaching, fellowship and community activities and in 2017 will run for at least 2-3 days per week plus involvement in Sunday Worship. It will be coordinated by a core group of young people with a concern and interest in doing something for other youth.

This group has been identified by the Bishop as having the capacity to engage with youth.

By giving to this new project you will allow young people in PNG to understand the Bible and the Anglican tradition, as well as equipping them to contribute to the wellbeing of self, family, church and village.

PG016YF needs $6,000 in 2017 (non tax-deductible)
