Kaurihohore / Kamo Co-operating Parish


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

Our mission statement

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.
  • Inclusiveness: 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.
