“… building up the body of Christ.”

The Ministry Formation Team provides resources and support in particular areas of ministry, while other liturgical and theological resources are available for personal use or anyone involved in putting together worship services and other church events.

Anglican Journal of Theology

The newly-formed Anglican Theological Research Network, Te Piri Poho, has launched New Zealand’s first Anglican, three-tikanga theological journal, called the Anglican Journal of Theology in Aotearoa and Oceania. The journal is freely available from the Te Piri Poho website and offers an opportunity for the wider church and theological community to access Anglican theological scholarship, and for contributors to share their stories of faith.

Accessible and Inclusive Church

We aspire to be welcoming and accessible to all communities. To honour and celebrate diversity we need to be open to different ways of looking and being in the world and in the church. The Disability Ministry Educators are regularly publishing resources that focus on a different aspect of being accessible and inclusive for all people. These are designed to be put up in buildings to spark discussion around different ways of being accessible and inclusive in ministry units. To find out more and to access the disability ministry and inclusivity resources, including a theological statement on disability in the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia, click here.
