PLEASE NOTE: There are many inaccuracies in this podcast – including the following:

  • Haupiri Valley (not Haupiori)
  • Neville Cooper did not set up Gloriavale in 1969 – he established Springbank community first, then wehn the community moved to Haupiri Valley in the early 1990’s the community was re-named Gloriavale
  • Alcathene pipes (not polystyrene)
  • Melody Pilgrim was unable to directly contact the producer / YouTube channel, but commented: “Hi there, I am an ex member of this cult. You have done a great job in making this video and bringing out the terrible things that have happened there. I just want to correct one thing you have said about what happened to my sister Prayer. My dad had nothing to do with locking her in the isolation room. Both my parents begged the leader on their hostel floor to let them open the door and were refused. My brother David R and my dad were the first responders to help Prayer. Yes it was mismanagement and neglect but not from my parents or family. I hold the leaders accountable as they made the decisions. My brother David recently starred in a documentary on NZ tv called the I AM series. It shows an accurate account of what happened in his life and with Prayer. Miss you little sister 😪. I am happy to get in contact if you have any queries.”
