Click to download the spring 2018 edition of Spanz. In this issue we look ahead to what is on the agenda at this year’s General Assembly and profile Assembly’s keynote speakers. Two ministers share stories about the transformative power of ministering in a disaster zone and we learn how Christian-based debt counselling is helping Kiwis out of poverty. We are inspired by outreach stories from around Aotearoa including the city parish partnering with a rural parish to run a children’s holiday programme; an Auckland parish that is building its multicultural capacity with support from PressGo and rural parish leaders gathering for resourcing and fellowship. We also hear about the work of Presbyterians serving in Vanuatu and how Kiwi support has enabled the rebuilt William Gray Memorial Church on Vanuatu's Tanna Island to be ready to host Presbyterian Church of Vanuatu's General Assembly. Read these stories plus many more in the spring 2018 edition of Spanz.
