Building the Church for Today and Tomorrow Conference (Christchurch)

Are you looking for new ideas, plans and actions for how your church can practically live out its faith? Do you worry about building a church that is engaged with its community and will remain engaged into the future? Do you wonder how your church can help build the kingdom of God in Aotearoa, New Zealand?

Christian Savings, in partnership with the Carey Centre for Lifelong Learning and Laidlaw College, invites church leaders, pastors, volunteers and involved lay people for a one-day conference which will be bringing together a range of experts from different church backgrounds to address some of the difficult questions of mission and ministry in the twenty-first century. What is the place of the church in a changing culture? How do we best manage our finances? What does strategic planning look like for a church? If we can’t do everything, what should we focus on? The day will start with some theory: church, society and culture. We’ll then move into practice: faith in action, money (investment and stewardship), and where to find help. The day will end with inspiration: real life case studies of churches doing well.

Christian Savings is pleased to offer subsidised ticket prices of $30 per person, because we believe every church in New Zealand can benefit from asking these questions and receiving expert guidance on how to answer them for their communities.
