  • From Northland, Wellington - July 2011

    1 November 2011

    One youth's dream to experience mission, coupled with a responsive youth group leader with people-resources grew into a youth group trip to Tonga. "When we wondered if we were, in fact, 'doing mission', we remembered the Archbishop of Polynesia's advise to 'just go, see, hear and be with the people'. At times, this put us outside our personal comfort zones. Fortunately we belong to a God who never leaves nor forsakes us, nor lets His little ones be put to shame. We hope the Tongans saw God in us, just as we saw Him shining through them. May the fruit of our journey continue to grow in both communities." more»

  • Report from Egypt

    10 February 2011

    It was a really hard start to the year, with 23 people killed by a bomb as they left their church in Alexandria a few minutes into the New Year. For me, it felt like the day of 9/11, a feeling of shock and disbelief that this could happen. As a foreigner, I'm one step removed, but the feeling at work was so sad. My workmates are generally laughing and walk into each other's offices telling jokes and laughing but everyone was so sad and subdued. This was followed by days of protests by Christians, who feel ignored by the government, and not protected enough. more»

In most of our churches and homes, there have been prayer meetings for the situation and for our beloved country Egypt. All our churches are safe, although they have not been guarded by the security since Friday when all the security were withdrawn. This assured us that the one who protects the churches is the Lord of the Church." link»

    It's past 11pm Day one – I'm at Raffles Gateway Hotel Nadi, Fiji and it's warm – 25 degrees warm! and walking around is like walking through one of those Hot houses you find at a Botanical Gardens. But I'm jumping ahead and quite likely being a bit rude as well, given I haven't even introduced myself! I'm Glen, The Projects officer for Anglican Missions. I'm in Fiji to find out what I can about the many things the Anglican Church is doing here. Things which our church in New Zealand is actually quite involved in through the funds we send over every year. But how much do we really know? And how many of us in our church have any idea about what God is doing in His church here??? link»

    Parishes: Update Your Resource Order
  • From Bishop Victoria

    4 October 2010

    As you are aware the Christchurch Canterbury earthquake was equal in strength to the devastating earthquake that killed and tore asunder Haiti in January 2010. Relatively little recovery work has been done in response. There are many reasons for the difference in the destruction wrought by the two earthquakes, and the difference in the level of response, but those reasons are not the point. What matters is that we respond in love. Hence with this letter I invite the people of the Diocese of Christchurch, and beyond, to raise at least one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000.00) for the earthquake recovery and relief efforts in Haiti, by the time we gather at Synod on October 30th this year.
