Discussions on income security, debt to government, and wealth distribution in Aotearoa New Zealand

With the upcoming elections, we encourage all Parishes and Methodist entities to use these resources leading up to the election. They could be used as a resource to create a series of services or reflections over several weeks, or as a series of discussion topics for a study group.

It is hoped that these resources will be useful in assisting you to frame questions to ask candidates in any meet the candidates meetings you hold. Consider what you would ask candidates to clarify or to explain their stand on issues raised in this resource document.

Our Mission Statement

Our Church's Mission in Aotearoa New Zealand is to reflect and proclaim the transforming love of God as revealed in Jesus Christ and declared in the Scriptures. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to serve God in the world. The Treaty of Waitangi is the covenant establishing our nation on the basis of a power-sharing relationship, and will guide how we undertake mission. In seeking to carry out our mission we will work according to these principles.

Ko te pūtake ā tō tātou Hāhi Weteriana i Aotearoa nei, he whakakite atu, he kauwhau hoki i te aroha whakatahuri o te Atua, he mea whakaatu mai i roto i a Ihu Karaiti, me ngā Karaipiture. Ko te Wairua Tapu e whakakaha ana i ā tātou kia tū māia ai hei tuari mā te Atua i roto i te ao. Otirā, ko Te Tiriti o Waitangi te kawenata e whakaōrite ana i tā tātou noho hei tangata whenua, hei tauiwi hoki, ki tēnei whenua. Mā tēnei Tiriti tātou e ārahi i roto i ngā whakariterite o tēnei whakahau, tono hoki, ki roto ki te ao.
