In New Zealand, Anglican Missions and NZCMS have a very strong and close relationship, partnering together to enable NZ Anglicans to participate in the overseas mission of the Church as Mission Partners.
Both NZCMS and Anglican Missions have been around for a while, in fact 124 and 96 years respectively. Together we are involved in mission throughout the world with people and projects in all sorts of places: Africa, Asia, the Pacific, the Middle East and Europe.
This collaborative relationship sees each organisation represented on the other’s governing body while staff work together in a number of areas.
The Anglican Missions Board provides a grant each year towards the cost of supporting Mission Partners serving overseas – in 2019 this grant of $560,000 covers a large part of the budgeted direct costs of current Mission Partners.
