Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea is a very diverse and colourful country; home to eight million people and more than 800 different languages amongst many ethnic clans across 600 islands. Mt Wilhelm in the Chimbu Province is the main home to our GCI membership, a vibrant and welcoming church with a growing number of young people.


Solomon Islands

Solomon Islands is composed of nearly one thousand islands, with between sixty and seventy languages spoken in the Solomon Islands archipelago. The capital of Honiara is situated on the main island of Guadalcanal. GCI members are located in Honiara and on the the island of Ranongga which is part of the New Georgia Islands group in the Western Province. This is a community-based church holding weekly services including a number of family ministries.



Fiji Our primary congregation in the capital city, Suva, was established in June 1979. This is a lively congregation, meeting for services every Sunday, as well as weekly Bible Studies in members' homes. There are other congregations and small groups in Nadi, Ra and Taveuni. An annual highlight for the Fiji members is their Christian Family Festival held on Viti Levu's Coral Coast, attended by almost all of the members from throughout the Fiji Islands, as well as visitors from overseas.



The greatest concentration of members is on the island of Malekula where we have a life development program in the village of Rory. In addition to the church activities which focus on the annual Christian family festival, we have provided a self-contained water supply by building a large tank to contain rainwater harvested from the roof of the meeting hall, and a building for women’s activities and the promotion of economic livelihood activities. The New Zealand churches have provided long term funding and manpower in the development of these projects.
