Presbyterian Women Aotearoa New Zealand

PCANZ Moderator's message to the Church regarding Presbyterian Women Aotearoa New Zealand (PWANZ)

18 May 2023


I write to inform the Church that Presbyterian Women Aotearoa New Zealand (PWANZ) has reluctantly decided to formally wind up as of 30 June message in full here.  

Who Are Presbyterian Women Aotearoa New Zealand?

Presbyterian Women Aotearoa New Zealand (PWANZ) is a national organisation which has the distinction of having Special Consultative Status as a Non-Governmental organisation with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), since 1998.

The significance of this expression of global mission is highlighted more fully in the United Nations’ reports available on this website.

Major changes in Church policies have taken place over more than fifty years, and such changes are reflected in the activities of Presbyterian Women today.

Particular emphasis is placed upon the roles of women to promote their voice and leadership within the church and the wider community.

Through ecumenical co-operation, an annual mission project is supported by Presbyterian Women and Methodist Women's Fellowship (MWF) groups.
