Changes on Norfolk Island

Greg Harris - National Director

After over six years on Norfolk Island David, Crystal, Wendell, Marigold and Ernest Fell are returning to the mainland in late 2021. David has accepted the role of Senior Pastor at Gymea Anglican Church in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire.

The family will take some long service leave from October 2021 and commence ministry in Gymea in January 2022.

While they are excited to move back to Sydney and closer to family, they mourn leaving a place they have called home since 2015. “The sad part is leaving Norfolk Island. This is our home, and it occupies a huge place in our hearts,” says David. “With these mixed emotions, we would appreciate your prayers for the next final months of our ministry here.”

“I have admired the way that David, Crystal and the kids have become an integral part of this unique community during their time on the Island,” says National Director Greg Harris. “From David’s programs on the local radio, to Crystal’s role as real estate agent, they formed close bonds in the community and were able to live out the gospel in word and deed. I pray that they will finish well and enjoy some quality family time on long service leave. Thank you for going the distance David, Crystal, Wendell, Marigold & Ernest.”
