Social Justice work

We believe in a society that reflects the new community that God is calling into being - the Kingdom of God. This is most clearly articulated in the Sermon on the Mount.
Social Justice is about fulfilling the commandments in scripture to stand with the poorest and most vulnerable in our society

Social Justice had a reset in 2017. After months of behind-the-scenes work, the Archbishops and the General Synod Standing Committee unveiled the church’s new approach to tackling social justice work. Find out more here (link to Taonga article).


“Social justice, is the heartbeat of the church.
We can’t talk theology, we can’t talk pastoral care,
we can’t talk ministry without doing social justice –
it’s the heart of our community.”

Archbishop Winston Halapua
