Australasian Pentecostal Studies Centre Significance Assessment – Dr Roslyn Russell

The Australasian Pentecostal Studies Centre (APSC) Significance Assessment Report has now been received from Dr Roslyn Russell of Museum Services. AC is very proud to house such a prestigious and valuable collection.  Dr Russell notes that the APSC:

“…is of considerable historical significance for its capacity to trace the development of Pentecostal spirituality in Australia from the revivals and street meetings of the early twentieth century to massive churches such as Hillsong. Pentecostal Christianity has, over a century, moved from the periphery to the mainstream of Christian life in Australia and now wields considerable social and political influence. The APSC collection documents this trajectory in publications, photographs, audiovisual and multimedia documents…These items, and the collection as a whole, can be demonstrated as having social significance for those who remember the personalities and the situations it illustrates. Much of the collection is modern, with extensive holdings of oral histories and videos, and this means that the connections it makes to the current Pentecostal community are powerful.”

Please continue to promote the APSC as a safe and worthwhile place for people to donate their archives, as well as a valuable research resource.  The full report can be viewed at:
