The task of the agency is to:

· Support and strengthen the world-wide mission of the Methodist Church of New Zealand.

· Promote an understanding of mission as a joining of evangelism, ministry to human need, concern for social justice, and concern for the world in the ecumenical relationships of the Methodist Church of NZ.

· Promote the ecumenical relationships of the Methodist Church of NZ.

· Promote the relationships of the Methodist Church of NZ with world Methodism.

The vision

Is to support and strengthen the mission and ecumenical understandings of the Methodist Church of New Zealand by:

· Working to further develop effective communication with parishes, rohe and co-operative ventures, through monthly newsletters, occasional papers, information leaflet and articles in “Touchstone”.

· Developing ecumenical understandings and commitment throughout the connexion using the “To be Methodist is to be Ecumenical” paper.

· Using the “Transforming Mission” paper as a working paper that provides a theological base for the work of the committee and secretary.

· Strengthening partnership relationships with the United Church of Papua New Guinea and the United Church of the Solomon Islands through personal visits, regular correspondence and sharing of resources.

· Strengthening relationships with ecumenical agencies of which the Methodist Church of New Zealand is a member – Conference of Churches of Aotearoa New Zealand, Christian World Service, Christian Conference of Asia, and the World Council of Churches.

· Producing resources (study and liturgical) on ecumenism and mission, suitable for use in parishes and rohe.
