The Church will mark Children’s Day by sending all parishes the new Presbyterian Church “Parenting Today” social issues study guide. The parenting booklet is aimed at taking a realistic look at parenting in NZ today, supporting parents to be the best they can be, and encouraging churches to run parenting courses for their congregations and communities.
Since the Church launched its e-minister to the public on 16 February 2010 there has been considerable positive media coverage.
Begun by a small group of Christian women 150 years ago, to pray for and support women and children in need, the World Day of Prayer has grown to an international movement in 170 countries.

Approximately 300 different churches and meeting places in NZ will use the same worship service on 5 March and all people of all faiths and genders are welcome to attend the services.
Begun in 2003 but little known outside the Church, e-minister has been launched to the New Zealand public, flyers have been distributed nationwide to organisations that offer the wider community information or advice.
The latest Press Go update has been emailed out, with news about Bethlehem's search for a would-be church planter to mentor, Knox Waitara's big dreams, Welcome Bay's fresh start and Crossroads' recent construction work.
