The mission district is developing through a partnership with FMWM-Asia and the Phillippine General Conference. A Filipina pastora registered the Free Methodist Church in Darwin, Australia, in 2001. The one congregation has French, Australian, Aborigine, Malysian and Filipino attendees. There is increasing interest in expanding work in Australia and connecting with immigrant groups from Africa and the Middle East. A new church is planned for Sydney this next year.
