Spring 2012

Our Spring edition looks at how our annual national youth leaders’ conference, Connect, attracted the largest number of young people in its 11 year history. We prepare for the return, after 28 years, of General Assembly to the Church’s Ohope Marae; and hear how there will be also be a return to a simpler style of worship. We explore the success of Spiritual Growth Ministries; and the success of a family and domestic violence preventative workshop for Pacific island leaders. We find out how the Church Property Trustees are responding to time of change; we profile our new Global Mission Coordinator; and the winners of this year’s Presbyterian Savings and Development Society ministry and mission innovation award; and we hear how Rice Bowl is providing a nourishing mission experience for an increasing number of churches. Plus many more stories from throughout our Church.
