Sharing God’s love, creating hope, working for justice.

Our mission statement

Kauri Carols 15 December 2023

In working together on our shared mission, we commit to the following values:

  • Togetherness: we cultivate genuine opportunities to gather together in worship and fellowship.
  • Humility: we recognise we do not have all the answers but are prayerfully journeying together as we try to seek them.
  • Curiosity: we are committed to a life of learning, questioning, and exploring the mystery of God, Jesus, and the Bible.
  • Love: we are committed to selfless love to all, including those marginalised by society and the wider church.
  • Inclusive: we recognise the full equality of the entire human family to share in ministry, leadership, and worship, regardless of race, age, physical ability, neurodiversity, marital or economic status, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
  • Justice: we hope for a better world for all and work together to be part of making that happen.
  • Sustainability: we care for and strive to restore the integrity of the Earth and all of creation.

Building Better Communities

Between July and September 2023 we gathered on Wednesday evenings in Te Kamo for a series of community conversations focused on important social justice issues raised in the Salvation Army’s State of the Nation Report 2023 (Children and Youth; Work and Incomes; Housing; Social Hazards; Māori Wellbeing; Crime and Punishment). Each conversation was led by a local expert and gave members of the community an opportunity to hear how others see these issues and express their own point of view.

We’re keen to hold more community conversations in 2024 and are interested in what topics you think our community should be discussing. Please get in contact at [E-Mail not displayed] to let us know your ideas.
