Contact us

The Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand has key Global Mission partnerships the Presbyterian Churches of Vanuatu and Myanmar.  Our historic involvement with the Church of North India is now largely focused on St. Tomas School in Jagadhri. We also have important relationships with networks of churches across Asia and the Pacific, and international bodies like the Council for World Mission.

Through these partnerships we respond to the call of Jesus Christ to make disciples of all nations and help to provide much-needed resources for Christian mission overseas. This also enriches the life of our Church through our mutual sharing and growing together in the worldwide body of Christ. The various links on this site will provide you with information about the current status of our Church's Global Mission efforts, and give you an insight into new trends and future possibilities.

Individuals and congregations within the Presbyterian Church are invited to enquire about how to participate in and support our work, by contacting the Global Mission Director, Phil King.
