As late as 1970, Meredith was still finding communities of Papuans in the Highlands for whom Christianity was novel, and he was the first to baptise any of them.

From 1948 he taught at the Slade School in Warwick, before moving to Papua & New Guinea in 1954 to teach at the Martyrs School in Popondetta. This was only three years after the Mount Lamington volcanic eruption which destroyed the school, and at the time it was still being rebuilt.
