During its early years, the Aborigines' Friends' Association was made up of both Protestant clergymen and laymen. The AFA carried out its mission activities by means such as appointing agents to work among Aboriginal communities, and establishing schools and missions. The AFA developed close historical ties with the Ngarrindjeri nation, in particular at the Port McLeay Mission at Raukkan under the management of AFA missionary agent George Taplin.
