The Bishop’s Lent Appeal 2024

The Bishop’s Lent Appeal 2024 will help to raise money to provide water tanks for Ordinand’s Homes at Newton Theological College in Papua New Guinea.

Bishop Graham writes: “Your donations and fundraising will enable ordinands and their families to thrive, so supporting the next generation of Christian leaders in Papua New Guinea to have the best possible start with their training.”

Most of the student houses at Newton College are in great need of refurbishment and nearly all need significant repair, but the primary need is to provide them with clean water from rainwater tanks and to reconnect toilets to septic tanks. 

It will cost around PGK 2,000 (around £400) to install a water tank between every two student houses and the aim is to raise to raise enough to provide twenty-five tanks between fifty student homes.
