  • 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»

    MOST people like chocolate eggs for Easter, but a small Papua New Guinea community called Dogura will be getting a tractor and, hopefully, pipes for a clean reliable water supply. Eltham resident Malcolm Pease has just completed work on this Massey Ferguson 245 tractor, ready for its new life in Dogura. The 600 residents need it for carting goods and people up a steep hill from the wharf to their village, and around the very rough roads in the area. 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 the midst of the turmoil which Egypt is going through, we have felt that the Lord is very near to us. We have experienced his peace, and we were assured of his protection. 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All our churches are safe, although they have not been guarded by the security since Friday when all the security were withdrawn.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»

  • Updates from Glen as he visits Fiji - Like Anglican Missions of Facebook to follow his trip!

    9 December 2010

    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.

Over approximately six years, a group of amazing volunteers collected, soaked, dried, sorted and catalogued over 120,000 NZ stamps. This consignment, a “one off” in AMB history, was sold recently for £3500 ($7547) to a UK collector. more»

    Record breaking monsoon rains have killed at least 1000 people and left tens of thousands marooned and homeless in the north west of Pakistan. Over one million people have been affected by the worst flooding on record. Officials fear the worst is yet to come if the flooding hits more populated areas and disease breaks out. The full extent of the damage remains unclear as many areas are inaccessible. The people of Pakistan urgently need outside assistance. ACT Alliance has an initial 3 month appeal for US$1.6 million but more will be needed. Please give generously. more»

The Anglicans' Church Missionary Society now sends mission 'partners' to regions all over the world - they are usually invited by local dioceses and their desire to work in the third world can be as much about helping the poor as it is about converting the locals. more»
