20/20 Vision - Towards discerning our Future

We live in challenging times. How does the Church share its life-giving message in ways that can be heard? How can smaller, and aging congregations be supported in their work? If only we could see into the future.

In 2017 Council of Conference asked a small work group to meet and consider how a significant budget deficit could be addressed. Rather than drawing a red pen through the budget the group decided to think about how the church might work in ways that were more sustainable. The 20-20 report is the result of that work.

The hope is that you will see the report giving permission to explore and to consider what could work in your setting.

Let the Children Live

Let the Children Live

The 10 year Vision "Let the Children Live - ending Child poverty, Child abuse and Youth Suicide in New Zealand" was launched at Methodist Conference in Wellington on November 4th 2012.

The Vision took shape as Council of Conference members considered how the centenary of the Methodist Church of New Zealand might be marked. The decision was to seek to build something which makes a difference in the fabric of New Zealand Society.

At the heart of the Vision is the belief that ordinary people can make a difference and that our churches are uniquely placed to foster positive interaction in their communities.

David Bush
General Secretary.
