We’re pleased to announce that all dioceses in New Zealand, Aotearoa and Polynesia are invited to take part in our Mission Noticeboard Competition. The winning team will win dinner with a mystery guest!
To take part, create an inspiring physical or digital noticeboard in your church or on your church’s website with a mission focus, to engage members of your congregation to take part in overseas mission. This could include information, scripture, interviews from your congregation, drawings and songs about mission from your youth group or children’s ministry, or anything else about mission!
Email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) your entry with ‘Mission Noticeboard Competition Entry’ in the subject line by 31st October to enter the competition! (Read the terms and conditions below.)
Physical noticeboard – See an example of a physical noticeboard here!
Digital noticeboard – See here an example of a page on your church website you can construct as online ‘noticeboard’ for your church. If you have great software and tech savvy skills we want to see them too!
