The Churches of Christ Federal Aborigines Mission Board (Inc) (CCFAMB) was established as an incorporated body, as part of Churches of Christ in Australia in 1942. The CCFAMB ran Norseman Mission; Carnarvon Mission (Ingada Village); Fairhaven Hostel, Esperance; Bamburra Hostel, Yokine; Condingup Hostel; and Roelands Village, including Wollaston Hostel in Bunbury. More than 2,000 children and young people lived in CCFAMB facilities until 1986, when their involvement in out of home care stopped. In 2009, the CCFAMB was officially renamed the Australian Churches of Christ Indigenous Ministries (Inc) (ACCIM), which in 2012 became part of Global Mission Partners (GMP).
