Congregational Union 50th anniversary is being marked this year

During Assembly in Dunedin in 1969, the report of the Special Committee on Consultation with the Congregational Union was received.

The recommendations that were passed saw ministers and congregations of the Congregational Union received into the Presbyterian Church. This changed both denominations.

Resources will be made available for all congregations to use as part of their worship on Sunday, 3 November to mark this anniversary.

A special service will be held at 4pm on Sunday 3 November at Newton Pacific Islanders Church, Edinburgh St to which all are invited. This will be led by Moderator, Rt Rev Fakaofo Kaio.

More information will follow in coming months.
