Mission has been a cornerstone of Northcity since our foundation.  It will always be an important part of who we are as a church whānau. We see mission as being something all of us are called to in one way or another, be it locally, nationally or internationally.  Below are some of the specific ways mission is outworked at Northcity.

 

International Mission

Part of the vision for Northcity Missions Support is to pray for people involved in cross-cultural mission. There is a meeting on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:30pm. This is usually a prayer meeting but sometimes has visiting speakers from overseas or other ministries.  For further details of the meeting check the Northcity Newsletter or call Chris Parsons on 021 836 750.

There is also a prayer meeting for mission upstairs at Northcity on the second Sunday of every month at 9am.

Some of the key overseas ministries we support in prayer (and in other ways) are:

Derek Prince Ministries (DPM) India, Sri Lanka, and Cambodia – Alan and Lynda Brookes

DPM is focussed on offering resources and teaching to spiritually hungry Christians through books, audio visual resources and websites – especially in countries where there is persecution and poverty.  Alan and Lynda travel to Sri Lanka, India and Cambodia each year from their base in Christchurch in order to be part of what God is doing through DPM in those regions.

One-2-One – Dr Annie and Dr Ralph Chen-Green

“One-2-One Charitable Trust is a non-profit organization that aims to demonstrate love in practical ways. It seeks to meet the holistic needs of the poor and vulnerable in Cambodia; the orphans, street children, people with HIV, and prisoners, meeting dental, medical, educational, vocational and physical needs, regardless of ethnicity, gender and religion.”

Dr Annie regularly heads to South East Asia to train and equip workers to serve the marginalised, believing that all people are individuals of worth and should be accepted and treated with respect, compassion, and sensitivity.

See one2oneworld.org for more info.

Samoa Alofa – Jeremy and Shelley Faumuina-Gibb

“Samoa Alofa is a charitable trust committed to changing the future of children in Samoa who have been raised in abuse and neglect.  We work closely with the Samoan Victim Support Group (SVSG) with a shared vision that children of violence, sexual abuse and neglect are protected, supported, safe and given every opportunity to restore their lives. Every child matters.”

Jeremy and Shelley travel to Samoa 5 times a year to draw awareness to the cruel reality of abused, neglected and unloved children of Samoa. They often take a team of volunteers to SVSG in Apia to get their ‘hands dirty’ and help care for the children at the shelter – working closely together with SVSG staff.

Local Mission

We are very involved in mission in our local community and passionate about living out the gospel practically in our own community.

Northgate Community Service Trust – Te Ketiraki

Northgate is our community wing and our primary way of connecting with our local community.  This includes everything from offering seniors’ exercise classes, to basic computer training, to mainly music for todlers and their parents.  There are a wide range of services all aimed at loving and serving those in our community in a way that shows their worth as people.  For many, Northgate provides a place of belonging and an incentive to get out an about.  For more on the work of Northgate see northgatetrust.co.nz.

Make Me New Opshop – Wayne and Karla Guerin

Make Me New is an Opshop run by Wayne and Karla in Redwood.  The shop is a hub for community engagement, providing connections to other services/support that people may be after.  As well as running the shop, Wayne and Karla use the clothes they receive to support Samoa Alofa, clothe the homeless of Christchurch, provide clothing (particularly school clothing) to children in Tanzania, providing job interview clothing through WINZ, as well as supporting many individuals from the local area.

Head on down to the shop and support them while getting yourself a bargain. Or check them out on Facebook.
