General Assembly 2023

General Assembly 2023 will be held from Wednesday 27 September to Sunday 1 October 2023. The venue will be Saint Kentigern College, Pakuranga, Auckland 2010.

More details will be added here as they become available.

Deadlines for reports, proposals and recommendations to 2023 General Assembly

Following consultation with the Assembly Business Workgroup convener, a deadline has been set for receiving all reports and proposals that will be considered by next year’s General Assembly. All material must be received by Friday 16 June 2023. Guidelines to assist those seeking to bring proposals will be sent to parish councils and presbyteries early in the New Year. This timeframe will enable us to facilitate a consultative process with presbyteries prior to Assembly. In this way, we will be able to fulfil the 2012 Assembly decision supporting presbytery participation in the setting of the Assembly agenda.


Saint Kentigern has a Presbyterian heritage and long associations to the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand.

Moderator designate

The Rev Rose Luxford of Oamaru will be the next leader of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand. Rose was elected Moderator designate by the Church and will take up the role of Moderator at the 2023 General Assembly. See more on Rev Rose Luxford here.
