Our summer edition of Spanz explores how Press Go’s Offspring is providing greater support for mission and helping to build capacity. We share the stories of churches feeding their communities, and helping offenders and their children, older people with dementia, and children with cold feet. We look at the continued success of the Te Whaiti Scholarship in producing NZ leaders, and look forward to Assembly Week 2014. Plus more stories from our Church.
