Pihopa nominated

Te Runanganui has successfully nominated one of its five bishops to become the next Pihopa o Aotearoa. The sanctioning process now begins.

Te Runanganui hears a fresh reminder of the continuing place long-closed Anglican Maori boarding schools still hold in the lives of those who passed through those places.

Te Runanganui has formally recognised the newly-fledged Aotearoa Maori Chaplains’ Charitable Trust as a “ministry priority.”

Te Runanganui has committed itself to amplifying the voice of young people in the church’s most important decision-making bodies.

ChristChurch debate continues

The Christchurch diocesan synod has engaged in robust debate over the future of ChristChurch Cathedral in the Square through yesterday and this morning. The synod is scheduled to hold its first vote on the Cathedral just after midday today.
