In the winter edition of Spanz magazine we discover how Neighbours Day can open doors into communities, and how parishes are using grants to fund mission with their communities, and how church volunteers are helping Syrian refugees. We unveil the incoming Moderator’s hopeful General Assembly theme. We hear from a choir that sings from the heart. We learn about the importance of school chaplains. We find out if death with dignity is possible under the current law. We examine how a fellowship draws students to a Chinese church. We share how Church volunteers are continuing to help heal Vanuatu. We profile an innovative youth worker committed to overseas mission, and two parishes embarking on valuable mission work in the Philippines. Plus many more stories from throughout our Church.
