Palmerston to Darwin
75 Years service on the frontier
By Arch Grant

When Reverend Archibald Bogle and his wife Hilda arrived in Palmerston in 1873 to commence a mission for the Wesleyan Church he had little more than his faith and an abounding enery. Within month he had established his new mission and become involved in the building of a hospital and formation of a District Council. He established a pattern of service which was to be followed by those who were his successors. Concern for the pioneer settlers on this remote frontier, for the aborigines whose country had been taken over and for the Chinese labourers brought to labour in the noon day sun became the charter of these brave pioneers of the Wesleyan Church of South Australia. After the devastation of the war years, another kind of pioneer work emerged as the Church stood with the returning civilian population as they sought to rebuild a shattered town and establish a democratic and just society in this place, situated on Australia's northern frontier. The tension between those on the frontier and those who are the administrators down south, in both church and state are a part of the history of what is today one of Australia's important cities.
