The Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa usually gathers in General Assembly every 2 years. It is a significant identity forming event in the life of our church.
Because of COVID it has been 3 years since we last met! We are overdue. So, God willing, we are planning to meet as the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church 29th September – 3rd October 2021 at St Andrew’s College in Christchurch.
The Book of Order states that the primary purposes and functions of GA are to
- Worship God
- Resource our life, worship and spirituality
- Attend to judicial, administrative and legislative matters
The theme of GA21 is Empowering Generations. It is our goal to thread this theme through our being together. We would like to share a vision whereby the older generation is empowered to effectively connect with the younger generation so that they in turn are empowered in their faith, life and impact in our nation.
The Local Arrangements Committee want to deliver all of this in a loving way. We have a vision for General Assembly that is accessible, inclusive and enjoyable.
Yours in Christ,
