The winter edition of Spanz magazine explores the meaning of cross-culturalism and asks if we are a cross-cultural Church. We share the story of Clevedon Presbyterian’s highly popular inter-cultural lunches. We find out how churches are working to support schools. We hear of an up-coming gathering aimed at inspiring church leaders involved in new mission ventures. We explore resources available for equipping elders. We celebrate the opening of a Waitara church built for its community. We marvel at the speedy refurbishment of Knox and Salmond colleges. We discover how a marae made its Messy Church a huge success. We profile: KCML graduating interns, PYM Bachelor of Ministries interns, and new Kids Friendly team member, the Rev Nikki Watkin. Plus more stories from throughout our Church.
