Outreach

Jesus calls us to love our neighbour and make disciples everywhere. Here are a few of the ministries and people we're involved with.

Mission partners

Luke and Naomi Sinclair

With only 0.5% of the population identifying as evangelical Christians, Japan remains the second-largest unreached people group in the world. Having experienced first-hand Japan’s need for Gospel labourers, Luke and Naomi are serving with "Kirisutosha Gakusei Kai" (Christian Student Fellowship) in Tokyo.

Community

mainly music is a fun, interactive music group for young children and their parents/caregivers. In the 30-minute session, children are introduced to music and creativity, developing their motor skills, language and imagination. Morning tea afterward (provided) gives you the chance to meet other parents/caregivers in the area while your littles continue to play and make new friends. mainly music at Fields Church is run by a passionate group of volunteers from our congregations. If you have a child under 5, we'd love to have you!

Ministries we love

Jesus showed compassion to the needy wherever he went, and Christians are called to do the same. Many great organisations serve the poor and vulnerable both locally and around the world. Here are four we've decided to highlight and encourage our members to support if they're able.

Drug Arm

Drug Arm is a non-denominational Christian response to both the growing and negative effects of alcohol and drug addiction. Originally established in Australia, Drug-ARM was set up in Christchurch in 1996.

0800 Hungry

A non-denominational, non-profit Christian Charitable Trust established to empower churches and social agencies of all denominations to reach out to those in our community who need a helping hand.

Tearfund

Tearfund represents the compassion of Jesus. For over 30 years they have worked through child sponsorship, microenterprise, community development, and disaster relief projects throughout the developing world.

Assistance is provided regardless of the religious beliefs of recipients. They partner with local Christian organisations and churches in developing countries that use local staff who work directly with the poorest people, helping them find their own solutions, cutting out the middleman, and reducing costs.

World Vision

World Vision is an international NGO that works to improve the lives of children and families in the developing world through sustainable, community-based initiatives. World Vision New Zealand was established in 1970 and currently supports more than 44 projects in over 25 countries. World Vision works alongside community members, encouraging local ownership of development projects to ensure they continue long after World Vision leaves.
