When a group like us talks about support it’s common to think only about money. Yes, financial giving is important and enables us to do what we do. But we’re not interested in gathering supporters who give to us, but members who feel a sense of belonging. There is a variety of ways you can help support our work here in New Zealand and beyond.

Note: If you would like to purchase the Our Story: Aotearoa book, please use the form on the left. 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. The cost is $10 per book + $2.50 shipping.

Prayer

Our website features daily prayer points. These are included in the weekly Interchange emailer (to signup use the form at the top of this page). You can also receive these requests on your smartphone or tablet using PrayerMate. Our monthly Prayer Fuel publication contains requests from each of our Mission Partners. Visit this page to be added to our mailing list.

Encouragement

If there is a particular Mission Partner you follow or have been praying for, why not send them a short encouragement? Use the contact form to send us a message that we can pass on.

Gathering

There are often gatherings of NZCMS folk across the country. It’s a chance to hear a Mission Partner, be informed about what’s happening in New Zealand, or pray for our networks around the world. Visit the events section to know what is coming up. What if there’s nothing in your area? Gather a few friends and get something started!

Giving

Supporting a Specific Mission Partner
One of the best ways to give to NZCMS is contributing directly to Mission Partners God has placed on your heart. This money given goes directly towards the percentage of support (usually 50%) each Mission Partner is required to raise, enabling them to serve God and the people he has called them to.

General Mission Support
Not sure where to put your donation? Giving to general funds allows us to allocate the money to the places where it is most needed. If you do not specify a Mission Partner or project when you send in a payment, we automatically place money in the general funds category.

Special Projects
We are connected with a range of people and projects and would be happy to recommend something suitable for you, your church or group.

Youth Work
Raising the next generation of disciples to impact the nations for Christ takes time, effort and money. Our Youth Mobiliser plays a vital role in encouraging and mobilising young people to get involved in the mission of God.

Mobilisation
Travel costs and promotional expenses may seem like fripperies but they are essential in helping spread the word about God’s global mission. If you are keen to give directly to this let us know and we’ll ensure your money is used to encourage the church to actively take part in mission.

Legacy Gifts
Over the past few years we have been well-supported by a number of very generous legacy gifts which have come in. We are incredibly grateful for the foresight of committed individuals who choose to remember NZCMS in their will.

In Memory Donations
Pay tribute to a loved one in a lasting way. If you have lost someone, please accept our condolences. Some people choose for donations to come to NZCMS in lieu of flowers. If they dedicated their life to God’s mission, or particularly to partnering with NZCMS, then a memorial donation is a very fitting way to celebrate their years of commitment.

If you decide to do this, we would be very grateful. For more information or to request donation envelopes, please contact office@nzcms.org.nz or phone Heather Fraser on 03 337 2234 (ext 3) to find out how to set this up.

Tax Credits
Tax credit letters are issued in April each new tax year. Donations eligible for tax credits include: support for long-term Mission Partners, general mission support, youth mobilisation. Donations which are not eligible for tax credits include: donations for overseas projects, support of short-term Mission Partners.

Receipts
Receipts are sent primarily by email unless arranged otherwise. If you don’t have an email address, we will send these by post instead. Usually we send just one annual receipt at the end of the tax year (after March 31), but we can instead send receipts after each donation is made. If you opt to receive receipts for each donation, please retain these for your tax credit. Please consider supplying us with an email address so we can email you your receipts, thus keeping down the costs of postage.

NZCMS is a registered charity under the Charities Act 2005 – Registration Number CC41504. All gifts except for overseas based projects are eligible for tax credit.
