Hīkoi i roto i Ōtautahi

October 30, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Let’s explore together the history of the gospel in our own backyard.

Please promote this to your leadership teams. A wonderful opportunity to share time and learning together.


The story of the Gospel in this region is important, and often neglected. We do not live and minister in a bubble of just the present.  Knowing the history informs the present and can make a very significant and positive contribution to the future. 

The hikoi will give an introduction to the story of the gospel here in Otautahi, especially in the early days of Maori / European contact and European settlement, with the aim of constructively influencing both our present context and future developments.  The Spirit of God is at work in our region, we aim to better understand the work of the Spirit in the past, so we can be more a part of the Spirit’s work now and in the days to come.

At each of the three sites we visit, we will be in the hands of our hosts, Anglicans, Methodists and Catholics. They will use the time as they wish, they will tell their story, they will pose whatever questions they wish.
