The spring edition of sPanz magazine celebrates 50 years of Presbyterian Women Aotearoa New Zealand. We discover how Presbyterian women are addressing serious issues through Bridgebuilders.

We admire three generations of Maori women influenced by Turakina. And we share the Moderator’s final column on healing inequality.
