The Archbishops and Bishops of the province have launched an appeal to help the Diocese of Christchurch and Te Hui Amorangi Te Waipounamu in their ministry, care and support to their people and parishes and communities affected by the 22 February Christchurch earthquake.

The Anglican Diocese of Wellington will be managing, on behalf of “the province”, the processing of all donations to this appeal.

The Diocese of Wellington will liaise with the Archbishops and General Secretary and the Bishops of the Diocese of Christchurch and Te Waipounamu to ensure these donations reach the coalface of need and will help people in the long process of rebuilding their lives, homes and communities.



International Donations
