Telling the stories of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, NZ and Polynesia

Congrats – here are our priorities

Te Runanga Whaiti (the Standing Committee of the Māori Anglican Church) has congratulated the new government – and suggested priorities.

Pihopa nominated

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

Shut schools still lamented

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. 

Ministry to Maori chaplains recognised

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

Te Runanganui on turangawaewae

Te Runanganui has spoken formally on the central importance of turangawaewae – which means more, apparently, than middle class fretting about the prices of houses in Auckland.

How are we supposed to fix this?

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

First, do no harm

The 2017 session of Te Runanganui gathered at Whakatu Marae in Nelson late this afternoon, preparing to vote for a new leader. And the members have been reminded that they have solemn responsibilities.

Maori about to choose new leader

Representatives of Maori Anglican churches throughout the motu will soon gather in Nelson for their biennial ‘parliament’. Their weightiest task? Voting for a new leader.

Iwi honour Archbishop Brown Turei

Iwi gathered at Tūrangawaewae for King Tuheitia's 11th coronation celebrations have taken time to remember and give thanks for the life and ministry of Archbishop Brown Turei.
