Our national magazine Spanz is circulated free to Presbyterian and Uniting churches in New Zealand. Spanz seeks to inspire and inform our churchgoers as they engage with their communities, as well as covering Presbyterian Church news.

Changes to Spanz publication

Prior to 2018, Spanz was a quarterly magazine, published each year according to this schedule: Autumn (March), Winter (June), Spring (September), and Summer (December).

Last year, Council of Assembly advised that as part of its policy of a balanced operational budget, resource allocated to the Spanz publication had been reduced for the year ended 30 June 2019, which meant a reduction from four editions to three in 2018/2019 .

In 2019, Spanz (no.76) will be published in May 2019 (there are no autumn or winter editions).  Spanz budget 2019/2020 is yet to be discussed by the Council of Assembly and information concerning future editions of Spanz will be advised in June 2019.
