The Australian Inland Mission (AIM), also known as the Australian Presbyterian Mission, was founded by The Reverend John Flynn (1880-1951), a Presbyterian minister following his report to the Presbyterian Assembly in 1912 on the needs of Outback people. His report resulted in the establishment of the AIM of which he was appointed Superintendent. In 1977, the Uniting Church was established and the inland missions of the Presbyterian, Congregational and Methodist Churches were combined to form Frontier Services.
Flynn's caring practical support to remote homesteads and communities was completed with the establishment of the AIM Aerial Medical Service, the precursor to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
The AIM ran the Halls Creek Mission in Western Australia from 1943 to 1960.
