The Multicultural Face of Mission

How do we reach an increasingly multicultural society with the Gospel?
More than 25% of New Zealander’s were born overseas. Last year 60,000 permanent and long term migrants made NZ their home and this is projected to increase. In God’s great kindness the nations are coming to us – how can we hold out the gospel of life to our increasingly multicultural society?
On Wednesday June 15 at 7pm, our very own Steve Maina will be speaking on this topic at a Multiply gathering. He'll shave about his experience of seeing the Gospel proclaimed in different cultural contexts all around the world and will be joined by a panel of local church leaders to dig into how their churches are working to engage the nations that have come to our doorstep with the Gospel.

  • What are the opportunities we have for reaching the nations that have come to NZ?

  • Where are our cultural blind spots that inhibit gospel growth?

  • How can we change anything apart from the gospel to remove and stumbling blocks for people from other cultures?


The event will be held at Lone Star, 364 Riccarton Road in Christchurch. The bar is open for you to grab a drink, and we will kick off with some nibbles. See you there!
