Telling the stories of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, NZ and Polynesia

Taonga heads off the beaten track

The Eastertide issue of Anglican Taonga magazine heads off the beaten track to sites of holiness where our two newest bishops grounded their calls to leadership.

Taonga News  |  18 May 2017  |

In the latest issue of Anglican Taonga magazine we hear the history that echoes through Onuku marae into Bishop Richard Wallace's story and find out why Bishop Don Tamihere chose to take up his crozier at Porourangi marae.

We revisit Archbishop Brown Turei’s final farewell and ponder his lasting legacy as our forbear in faith.

We meet two Kiwi missionaries driven to see Christ’s love and justice take root in the world, and follow their work in Northern Uganda.

We head back to the epicentre of the 7.8 Hurunui-Kaikoura quakes six months on, to check out post-quake life and ministry in rural Marlborough and North Canterbury church communities.

Taonga's guest writers and regular contributors share their latest insights and passions in this issue, including:

Eleanor Sanderson – On transforming mission into local communities

Tim Cooper – 500 years on from the reformation

Adrienne Thompson – On being a race-reconciling Pakeha

John Bluck – A season at the mercy of our health system

Annabel Howe & Diana Langdon – On putting kids first for next Easter

Spanky Moore - What drives your faith?

Paul Oestreicher – On 100 years on from the Somme

And we review the usual round of books and film.
