Autumn 2014

The autumn edition of Spanz magazine explores how Press Go has changed focus away from providing grants to a broader vision of resourcing and equipping mission. We introduce the GA Assembly Week 2014 keynote speaker and unveil the Assembly Week logo. We profile the Presbyterian who has re-established chaplaincy at Mt Eden Prison. We explore how an increasing number of Presbyterian church leaders and ministers are using online “blogs” to communicate with their communities and strengthen relationships. We share the journey to leadership of the Presbyterian Church’s first Tongan minister. We discover how one church found a creative way to show 10,000 reasons to praise God. We jump onboard the Peace Train and hear about a Presbyterian’s travels from Berlin to Busan to promote the reunification of a divided Korea. We find out about a “buddy” initiative that helped raise child abuse awareness. We learn how a festival held to encourage young people in their faith attracted South Auckland youth. We discover why applications from parishes are on the rise for Tindall funding. We learn what Presbyterian church youth thought of their first taste of Asia in Taiwan. Plus many more stories from throughout our Church.
