Our Story is still available

Last year we released a new NZCMS Book, Our Story: Aotearoa – the Story of Mission in New Zealand Through the Lens of the New Zealand Church Missionary Society. If you've not already ordered your copy, now is the time. The book takes us on a journey through history, from the founding of CMS in England through to mission from New Zealand in the 21st century. Each chapter will help you discover how God’s story and our national narrative have been woven together.

The chapters of the book, each penned by a different author, seek to uncover the redemptive aspects of the stories of the missionaries first sent to New Zealand, to remember the grace provided to the missionaries sent from our land and to envision the future with God.

The book covers key moments in NZCMS history – reflecting on the impact of the League of Youth, mission in Pakistan and East Africa, and the birth of NZCMS in Nelson. We believe it is an invaluable resource for churches and individuals around the country who desire to understand the legacy upon which we build.

A bound copy of Our Story: Aotearoa can be yours for just $10 + $2.50 shipping.

There are two ways you can order your copy. First, you can contact Heather in the NZCMS office by emailing heather@nzcms.org.nz. Otherwise, use the NZCMS giving form: fill out your details, under "What would you like to support" select other, and in the space "Other project or Mission Partner" fill in "BOOKSTORY" plus the number of books you wish to order.
