We were looking forward to joining with you all at our inaugural National Elders Conference 23 - 25 September 2021.
However, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this event due to staff capacity, and the logistical challenge of running a national event for a diverse group of church leaders, with many work and family commitments, from around the country.
This was a tough call, but we believe it is the right decision.
We remain committed to serving and supporting the leaders of our movement’s churches. We continue to have a desire to involve elderships from around the regions in courageous conversations, exploring practical solutions, building relationships, and strengthening cross-church collaboration so that together we can see the gospel flourish together in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
In place of the National Elders Conference, we are planning on other ways we can gather and serve elderships at a regional level.
We will share details of what this might look like as they are developed in conjunction with regional church leaders. Please know our ongoing commitment to serving the spiritual shepherds, the elders, of our churches.
