Summer 2013

The summer edition of Spanz magazine explores how Press Go’s Offspring is providing greater support for mission and helping to build capacity. We share the stories of churches helping offenders and their children through Presbyterian Support programmes and Angel Tree. We find out how St John’s in Hastings cooked up a recipe for effective mission in their community. We look at the continued success of the Te Whaiti Scholarship in producing NZ leaders. We celebrate the creative way Johnsonville Uniting warmed feet and hearts at a Porirua school. We find out how Mairangi and Castor Bays and St George’s Presbyterians are assisting those in their community with dementia. We look forward to the 2014 PresCare Lenten resource. We discover the key to St John’s in the City’s growing evening service.  We bid farewell to our Presbyterian archivist after two decades of service. We hear more details on Assembly Week 2014. We learn how Going Deeper and Going Global are inspiring the Church’s young leaders. We share how a Vanuatu pastoral visit provided a Talua lecture opportunity. And we examine the ways ministers and congregations are stepping out of their comfort zones to connect with multicultural communities. Plus more stories from throughout our Church.
